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

Dolan Doubles, Skender Skids


Michael Skender opened with a raise to 235,000 from under the gun, then John Dolan reraised all in for 1,335,000 from middle position. It folded back around to Skender who made the call.

Skender showed {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Dolan {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. The flop favored Dolan, coming {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. The turn was the {3-Spades} and the river the {Q-Diamonds}, giving Dolan a second pair and securing him the pot. Dolan is up to 2.75 million after that hand.

"Whoohoo, I'm still in the tournament!" said Skender afterwards, demonstrating his perspective on the matter. He's still in all right, but down to 750,000.
