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

Thorson Straight To The River


Jakob Toestesen opened the action with a raise to 125,000 from the cutoff position. Redmond Lee called in the small blind, as did William Thorson in the big blind to go three ways to a flop of {3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

The three players tapped the table and the free card on the turn was the {Q-Clubs}. Again it was checked around and the river delivered the {6-Clubs}. Lee checked again but this time Thorson took a stab with a bet of 350,000. Toestesen let it go btu Lee made the call.

Thorson tabled {7-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for a rivered straight which was good to rake in the pot. He's up to 7.11 million with Lee down to 1.7 million.
