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

Squeeze Gone Bad


Christopher George opened a recent pot with a pre-flop raise. He was called in two spots before big blind Pim van Wieringen re-raised all in. George made the call with {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs} and discovered that van Wieringen had been attempting to squeeze everyone out with {10-Spades}{9-Hearts}. Van Wieringen did manage to flop a ten, {6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}, but the turn and river came running queens, which did not help his cause. He's out, and George is up to about 1,150,000.
