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

Toorell Moves In On Meloche


Mark Meloche opened with a raise from middle position to 55,000 with Niklas Toorell making the call on the button.

They took a heads-up flop of {3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and Meloche led out with a bet of 60,000. Toorell made the call and the {A-Clubs} hit the turn.

Meloche fired again for 125,000 and Toorell again flatted in position to see the {q-Spades} complete the board.

Meloche made it three barrels with a 150,000-chip bet and Toorell went into the tank. He emerged with the quietly spoken "I'm all in". Meloche jumped from his chair but he wasn't happy about it, eventually finding a frustrated fold.

Meloche is back where he started the day with 970,000, as Toorell is now up to 1.65 million.
