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

Pettit Sets; Kristofferson Can't Spike

In early position, Gualter Salles raised to 33,000 and Michael Pettit called two seats over. When it came around to big blind Paul Kristoffersson, he reraised to 100,000 straight, folding Salles but keeping Pettit around with a big pot brewing.

The two men went heads up to a flop of {8-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {2-Clubs}, and Pettit slid out 130,000 chips. Pettit called, and the {4-Hearts} dropped on fourth street. Kristoffersson only had one move left: all in for 403,000. Pettit's call came instantly as he turned over {8-Spades} {8-Hearts} for the set, and Kristoffersson's {J-Clubs} {J-Spades} were dead to two outs.

The river {A-Hearts} was decidedly not a jack, and Kristoffersson has been eliminated.
