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

Roothlus Action

In a battle of the blinds, Adam Levy opened to 480,000 from the small and Benjamin Statz called from the big.

The flop brought {9-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {2-Clubs} and all of the action. Levy checked and Statz bet 400,000 before getting check-raised to 1.025 million. Statz popped it right back to 2 million straight and Levy wasn't going anywhere. He moved all in for 4.6 million and Statz called to put him at risk with a pot of more than 10 million chips up for grabs.

Showdown
Levy: {4-Hearts} {4-Spades}
Statz: {A-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}

"I am so screwed," Statz astutely noted. He was drawing dead to his four-out gutshot straight (or running, non-pairing clubs, if you're scoring at home). The turn {10-Spades} was safe and clean for "Roothlus", and the river {10-Hearts} filled him up and doubled his stack to 10.28 million.

Statz is wounded now, set back to about 6.4 million after doubling Levy.
