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

Costner Pressures Kostritsyn


Joseph Cheong raised it up from early position to 140,000 with Alexander Kostritsyn made the call in middle position and Gabe Costner came along in the big blind.

They took a flop of {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and Costner checked to Cheong who fired 240,000. Kostritsyn made the call and Costner came along to see the {10-Diamonds} on the turn. This is where things got interesting.

Costner and Cheong both checked to Kostritsyn who bet out 825,000. Costner then put in a check-raise to 1.8 million! Cheong had seen enough as he folded and Kostritsyn went into the tank. With about 3.9 million behind, Kostritsyn eventually decided to let it go as Costner rakes in a huge pot to crack the 10-million-chip mark!
