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

Affleck Flushes Thorson

Matt Affleck contemplating a decision

William Thorson limped in from the hi-jack only to be faced with a 375,000-chip raise from Matt Affleck from out of the small blind.

Thorson made the call, and when greeted with a 475,000-chip bet on the {5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop, he called that too.

The turn landed the {6-Diamonds} and Affleck continued his aggression; making it 900,000 total with Thorson once again calling.

With the river falling the {8-Diamonds}, Affleck sat deep in the tank before sliding out a bet of 1,400,000. Thorson made the call, but mucked at the sight of Affleck's {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for a flush, along with the pot to climb to 9,400,000 as Thorson himself slips to 9,340,000 in chips.
