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

Skender Bender


Michael Skender raised to 20,000 and Mike Mustafa reraised to 53,000 from the button. Skender made the call and the two players saw the flop come down {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Skender check-called a bet of 50,000 from Mustafa and the {K-Hearts} fell on the turn.

Skender checked to Mustafa again and he fired out 100,000. Skender called and the final community card was dealt the {A-Clubs}.

Skender moved all in to put Mustafa all in for his last 250,000 or so. He made the call.

Skender held the {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped flush and Mustafa the {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for a turn and rivered two pair. Skender won the pot and boomed his way to about 1.4 million in chips.
