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

Holt Sings Ave Demaria

Thomas Demaria raised on the button, and Karga Holt three-bet from the small blind to 100,000. Demaria called, and they saw a {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop. Holt bet out 130,000, and Demaria counted out a call but decided to go all in instead for 850,000. Holt didn't like it, but he made the call all in for 675,000. Demaria liked that even less.

Holt: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} for an overpair
Demaria: {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for an open-ended straight draw

The {10-Hearts} turn and {2-Spades} river didn't hit Demaria. He couldn't believe what he'd done as Holt decimated his stack. Demaria was left with 185,000 while Holt jumped to 1,575,000. Demaria was eliminated shortly after.
