Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Crane Collects


With about 7,000 in the middle and the board showing {Q-Spades}{4-Spades}{A-Diamonds}, Russell Crane fired a bet of 3,000 from the big blind, then sat patiently while his opponent sitting under the gun tanked.

Finally his opponent let it go, and Crane -- a final tablist at the 2009 WSOP $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event (where he finished third) -- dragged the pot. Crane is at 13,500 at the moment.
