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

Affleck Flushed By Thorson


William Thorson opened to 130,000 from the cutoff and Matt Affleck made the call from the big blind.

Affleck check-called a 160,000-chip bet when the flop landed {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades} to see the {8-Spades} land on the turn. Affleck took the initiative and led out for 360,000 with Thorson making the call before the {4-Spades} landed on the river.

Affleck led out strongly once again; this time for 800,000, only to have Thorson make it 2,000,000 to go.

Taking nearly five minutes, Affleck eventually called, only to be shown Thorson's {A-Spades}{5-Spades} for the nut flush.
