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

Harder Turns Double


Christian Harder opened to 47,000 from under the gun and was called by Brandon Steven, Gary Kostiuk and Matt Affleck.

Affleck checked the {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop from the big blind as Harder fired out 85,000. Steven passed, but Kostiuk made the call as Affleck folded too.

The turn landed the {5-Clubs} and Harder led out for 200,000 before Kostiuk moved all in. Harder made the call for his 585,000-chip stack to take us to a showdown.

Harder: {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Kostiuk: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}

The river landed the {2-Hearts} to see Kostiuk slip to 211,000 as Harder doubles through to 1,680,000 in chips.
