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

Horton Hits The Highway


Brian Horton open-shoved from the small blind for his last 180,000 and Ryan Eriquezzo looked down at his cards in the big blind and decided to make the call.

Horton: {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Eriquezzo: {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Horton held the lead but that changed on the {K-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop, much to the dismay of Horton.

"Wow, this is just great..." sighed Horton but the {3-Spades} turn did give him a few more outs with an open-ended straight draw. Horton couldn't connect on the {j-Hearts} river and was sent to the rail as Eriquezzo is up to 2.5 million.
