Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Vonk Doubles, Closes Gap


Marcel Vonk had taken a couple of pots to move up about 2.4 million when the following hand took place. Vonk opened with a raise to 230,000, and David Peters responded by announcing he was all in. Vonk took just a few seconds, then said "I call."

Peters {A-Diamonds}{3-Spades}
Vonk {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

Vonk stood to watch the community cards being dealt, while Peters remained seated. The flop came {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, pairing Vonk. The turn brought the {9-Hearts}, and Vonk retook his seat as he could no longer lose the hand. The dealer delivered the {6-Spades} as the inconsequential fifth street, and pushed the pot to Vonk.

Peters still has the advantage, but the pair have drawn much closer now. Peters has about 6.5 million and Vonk about 5 million.
