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

Lodden Thinks Kirsch Won't Have to Worry About Any More Penalties


Yesterday Richard Kirsch received a penalty for disclosing the contents of his hand before is last opponent folded. That won't be an issue for Kirsch today -- he's been knocked out of the tournament by Johnny Lodden. Lodden opened in the cutoff for a standard raise. Kirsch then shoved for 165,000 total. Lodden called fo a flip, his {a-Spades}{9-Hearts} against Kirsch's {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. Cue up an ace on the flop, {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Kirsch actually turned a gutshot draw to go with his set draw, {2-Clubs}, but the river {10-Diamonds} filled neither. He's on his way to the cage and Lodden is on his way to about 2 million in chips.
