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

Big River, But Thorson Loses Minimum


William Thorson made it 110,000 to play from under the gun and Gabe Costner made the call in the small blind.

The flop fell {5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {J-Hearts} hit the turn. Costner led out for 150,000 and Thorson made the call. The river was the {K-Clubs} and Costner bet out again for 475,000 and Thorson tossed out calling chips.

Costner opened {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for a running Broadway straight and the nuts to win the pot as Thorson reluctantly flashed {K-}{J-} and mucked.

Thorson falls to 5.84 million with Costner up to 6.9 million.
