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

McCrink Sent Packing

Jim McCrink

Tony Dunst opened to 135,000 from middle position with William Thorson making the call next to speak before Jim McCrink moved all in for 1,820,000 from the small blind.

Dunst quickly folded, but Thorson deliberated for over four minutes before making the call for the additional 1,685,000.

McCrink: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Thorson: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

The flop of {7-Spades}{J-Hearts}{4-Hearts} kept McCrink in the lead, but left Thorson drawing to his two overcards or a combination of backdoor straight or flush cards.

Thorson wouldn't have to wait too long as he struck lightening on the turn when the dealer dropped the {Q-Diamonds} to put the Swede into the lead.

The river landed the {2-Spades} to see McCrink eliminated as Thorson climbs to 7,300,000 in chips.
