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

Two Pair, Two Million


Johnny Lodden has more than 2.0 million in chips after taking a modest pot off of Denis Pisarev. Lodden opened for 50,000 from late position pre-flop, with Pisarev calling from the button. Lodden checked an ace-high flop, {2-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, then called a bet of 65,000 from Pisarev.

Both players checked the {2-Hearts} turn. At the {7-Hearts} river, Lodden led into Pisarev for 205,000. Pisarev snap-called, but couldn't beat {a-Clubs}{7-Spades} that Lodden tabled for two pair, aces and sevens. Pisarev mucked and fell to about 365,000 in chips.
