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

Statz Going Up


Following a four-bet shove by Benjamin Statz, Nicholas Fierrogottner called with his remaining chips, setting himself all in for about 200,000 total.

Statz showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} and Fierrogottner {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}. The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, giving Statz a set. The turn was the {5-Clubs}, meaning Fierrogottner had a wheel draw to survive. But the river was the {J-Clubs}, and Fierrogottner is out.

Statz moves to 1.3 million right now. He's sitting at the same table with Justin Tazelaar who has about 1.2 million at present.

"All right, seat 9," said Statz to Tazelaar. "Let's flip!"
