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

Tsinis Is In This


James Carroll opened for 25,000 from middle position, and David Liu, sitting to Carroll's left, reraised to 103,000. It folded around to Arkadiy Tsinis in the small blind who pushed all in for his remaining 118,000. Scotty Nguyen folded his big blind, Carroll also quickly folded, and Liu made the call.

Tsinis {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Liu {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, and now Tsinis didn't want to see an ace, king, or jack. The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, pairing the board -- good thing for Tsinis, as the river brought the {J-Diamonds}, and his full house beat Liu's straight.

Tsinis survives with about 250,000, while Liu has about 680,000.
