Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Falk Hanging in There

• Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Kenneth Stratton raised to 5,000 from the hijack and Adam Falk re-raised all in for his last 13,300 from the small blind. The big blind folded and Stratton thought it over before making the call. Falk was in dominating position with his {A-Spades}{K-Spades} against Stratton's {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}. The {6-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop made Falk an overwhelming favorite. The {J-Spades} came on the turn and {Q-Hearts} river was too little too late for Stratton, who doubled Falk up to about 30,000. The blow wasn't too devestating for Stratton, who still sits with around 75,000.
