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

Toestesen Plays It Safe

[user67765]

Alexander Kostritsyn raised it up to 150,000 and Jakob Toestesen made the call on the button. Gabe Costner called along from the small blind and the three took a flop of {6-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

All three players checked and the turn brought the {2-Diamonds}. Costner checked and Kostritsyn took a stab worth 275,000. Toestesen called as did Costner, as the {6-Clubs} completed the board on the river. All three players checked it down.

Costner opened {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs} and Kostritsyn's cards hit the muck, but Toestesen showed {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for a monster - a flopped full house! Toestesen saw something on the board that scared him as he kept the pot small to chip up to 5.9 million. Costner is down to 8 million with Kostritsyn at 5.2 million.
