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

Dunst Hits the River


It hasn't been a good day for Tony Dunst. He started as the chip leader and has been slowly leaking chips for most of the day. A recent river might have marked the turnaround for Dunst, however. He opened from late position for 25,000 and was called by small blind Trevor Roberts. Roberts checked a {3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop, allowing Dunst to continue for 50,000. Roberts called that bet.

Both players checked the {q-Spades} turn. When the river came {4-Clubs}, a seeming blank, Roberts led into Dunst for 45,000. Dunst put in a surprising raise to 165,000 that Roberts eventually called.

"Two pair," said Dunst. He opened {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for fours and treys to claim the pot. He's now up to about 1,060,000.
