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

Two Pair for Steven


With the action folding to Brandon Steven in the cutoff, he raised to 42,000 with Nicholas Rainey calling from the small blind.

The flop fell down {10-Spades}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Rainey led out for 39,000 with Steven making the call.

The turn landed the {3-Clubs} and Rainey again led; this time for 68,000, with Steven again smooth-calling.

The river landed the {7-Clubs} and Rainey checked before Steven pushed out a bet of 107,000 to put Rainey deep into the think-tank.

After nearly two minutes of deliberation, Rainey made the call, but mucked at the sight of Steven's {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} as to 1,450,000 while Steven collected the pot to move to 780,000 in chips.
