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

Running Straight Cards, Bro

Peter Neff raised to 1,600 from the button, and Mark Teltscher reraised to about 3,600 from the small blind. In the big, Eugene Todd wasn't messing around either. He moved all in for an additional 12,775 on top, Neff folded, and Teltscher called to put him at risk.

Teltscher: {K-Spades} {J-Clubs}
Todd: {8-Spades} {8-Clubs}

Todd was safe on the flop, scared on the turn, and eliminated on the river of a board that came down {10-Spades} {10-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}. Teltscher's straight does the deed, sending Todd out and adding those chips to his own stack of 52,500.
