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

Affleck Starts Chipping Up Again


Back from dinner, the first significant pot at the outer table belongs to Matt Affleck. Affleck defended his big blind against a raise to 600,000 made by small blind Jonathan Duhamel. Both players checked an ace-high flop, {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. When the turn came an {8-Clubs}, Duhamel tried a bet of 850,000. Affleck was undeterred and called to see the {9-Hearts} hit the river. Both players again checked. Affleck showed a pair of eights, {j-Spades}{8-Spades}, to collect the pot.
