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

Skender Claims Another

Michael Skender raised under the gun before Marius Arnesen shoved all in for 244,000 on top. Skender called for a fraction of his own stack, and another player was at risk of elimination as the dealer called for a showdown:

Skender: {K-Hearts} {10-Hearts}
Arnesen: {9-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}

The flop was clean for Arnesen ({3-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {3-Hearts}), but the turn was a disastrous {K-Clubs}. The {8-Diamonds} river sealed his fate, and Marius Arnesen is the latest name to appear on the cashier's payout registry.

Skender - 3.8 million
