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

Steven Falling Down

Brandon Steven raised to 775,000, and he was called by John Racener in the blinds.

The two men went to a flop of {5-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}, and it went check-check. The action repeated with two more checks on the {K-Clubs} turn. The river {5-Clubs} drew a leading bet of 1.1 million from Racener. Steven quickly called, but those chips were not coming back to him. Racener showed king-jack, and kings up earned him the pot and set Steven all the way down to 2.695 million once again.

Steven shoved the next hand to earn the blinds and antes and grab a few of those lost chips back. Still, he's got a lot of work to do.
