Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

A Late Scalp for Shulman


Barry Shulman is looking to end the day with more than 100,000 in chips thanks to a late elimination. He opened a pot pre-flop for 1,200 and was called by the button player before the small blind three-bet to 4,600. All three players went to the flop, {7-Clubs}{a-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. The small blind checked, allowing Shulman to bet 10,000. That was enough to drive out the button, but the small blind went for a check-raise to a bit more than 20,000. Shulman called with {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}, in great shape against the small blind's {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Nothing changed on the turn or river. Shulman dragged the pot to increase his count to about 113,000.
