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

Pisano Gets Paid

Benjamin Statz raised to 300,000 from middle position and Robert Pisano came along with the call with the benefit of the button.

The flop brought {3-Spades} {2-Hearts} {5-Diamonds}, and both players checked to the {2-Clubs} turn. Statz put out a delayed continuation bet of 300,000, and Pisano made the smooth call. On the {3-Diamonds} river, Statz checked it again, and Pisano took the opportunity to fire out a bet of 825,000. His opponent tanked it up for a couple minutes, finally putting the calling chips into the pot.

Pisano will take those. He showed up {8-Spades} {8-Clubs}, and his overpair was the winner. Dragging those chips in moves him to about 8.25 million while Statz has slipped to about 8.8 in his own right.
