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

Action Flop for Direnzo and Jarvis


Matthew Jarvis probably thought that he got a pretty great flop. He was holding {a-Spades}{j-Spades} on a flop of {9-Spades}{10-Spades}{j-Hearts}. His opponent, Gianni Direnzo, had three-bet to 202,000 pre-flop after Jarvis opened for 72,000. Jarvis had called, then checked the flop. Direnzo continued for 500,000, drawing an all-in check-raise from Jarvis. Direnzo called for 870,000 more with {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, a set of tens. That left Jarvis looking for a non-pairing spade that never came, {3-Hearts} turn and {j-Diamonds} river.

Jarvis slipped back below 5.0 million, while Direnzo is up to 3.2 million.
