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

Small Setback for Lodden


Another all in at the Red mini-feature table shortly after Tony Dunst doubled up brought us back to the table. Daan Slutter was all in pre-flop for 377,000 with {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Everyone's favorite thinker, Johnny Lodden, was attempting the knockout with {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}.

"I know eights are leading but I'd be more comfortable with the ace-queen," said Slutter. That may have been true pre-flop, but we imagine Slutter was happy to have the eights after Lodden whiffed a board of {6-Hearts}{j-Spades}{7-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{6-Spades}. That small hit for Lodden increased Slutter to about 750,000.
