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

Thorson Tank-Folds


Damien Luis raised it up to 40,000 from late position before William Thorson made it 100,000 to play from the small blind. Luis made the call and they took a flop of {7-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.

Thorson led out for 150,000 and Luis made the call to see the {K-Diamonds} hit the turn. Thorson decided it was a good card to bet another 400,000 but Luis came along once again. The river {2-Hearts} seemed like a brick but Thorson slowed down and checked it over to Luis who attacked with another 400,000.

Thorson deliberated for some time as he sighed, "I have a sick feeling I'm going to fold and you're going to show me like jack-ten of spades..."

Thorson eventually decided to let it go as he slips back to 1.3 million with Luis up to 2.5 million.
