Event #5: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Two Hands to Boost Somerville

Jason Somerville was just involved in two hands that helped boost him back towards the front of the pack.

We were a little late getting to the first hand and caught a board reading {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Somerville check-called a bet of 12,500 from his opponent and showed {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, which was enough to beat his opponent's {9-}{9-}.

On the very next hand, against the very same opponent, Sommerville called a preflop bet of 1,700. The flop came down {3-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

After seeing the flop, Somerville check-called a bet of 2,800 from his opponent. Both players checked the {q-Clubs} on the turn. When the {4-Clubs} came on the river, Somerville led out with a bet of 4,800 and was called by his opponent.

Somerville showed {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and his opponent mucked. After this hand, Somerville is up to 99,500;
