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

Costner Wins Round Two


Alexander Kostritsyn raised it up to 150,000 from under the gun and Gabe Costner made the call on the button, as these two set themselves to tango once again.

The flop fell {K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and both players checked to see the {6-Spades} fall on the turn. Kostritsyn checked, Costner bet 225,000 but Kostritsyn went for the check-raise to 580,000. Costner called and both players checked down the {2-Diamonds} river.

Kostritsyn opened {A-Spades}{9-Spades} for a busted flush draw as Costner showed {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for top pair to take it down.

Round two in the battle of Costner versus Kostritsyn, and again Costner comes out in front. He's up to 10.9 million and into the tournament chip lead as Kostritsyn slips to 3.1 million.
