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

Hartnett Hurting


In what appeared to be a multi-way limped pot, Michiel Sijpkens popped it up an additional 80,000 from the big blind with just Patrick Hartnett making the call from under the gun as the other players stepped aside.

The flop landed {2-Spades}{4-Hearts}{K-Spades} and Sijpkens led out for 120,000. Hartnett made the call and the {A-Clubs} hit the turn. Sijpkens released a second barrel worth 150,000 and again Hartnett made a quick call.

The river was the {10-Hearts} and both players checked it down. Sijpkens showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} for a pair of aces but his kicker played as Hartnett flashed the {A-Spades} and mucked.

Hartnett is down to his last 355,000 while Sijpkens is sitting pretty with 2.15 million.
