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

Small Ball

[user75032]

The pots are small at the outer table. If they stay this small we could be in a for a very long night. Most recently, Jonathan Duhamel opend pre-flop for 750,000 and was called by Joseph Cheong. Action checked all the way to the river, {2-Spades}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{a-Clubs}. That's where Duhamel bet 875,000. Cheong, who had checked first to act, called and mucked upon being shown {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

Duhamel hasn't been shy to open pots but he seems to be shutting down unless he hits. As a result his stack hasn't made much progress. It currently stand at 54.4 million.
