Event #13: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Getting Closer To Even

Robbie Verspui raised to 100,000 on the button and Andrew Badecker made the call from the big blind.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Badecker checked. Verspui bet 125,000 and Badecker check-raised to 280,000. Verspui made the call.

The turn was the {6-Spades} and Badecker bet out 545,000 with a call from Verspui.

The river was the {3-Clubs} and both players checked. Verspui showed {J-Spades}{5-Spades} for a pair of fives and this was enough to beat out the {A-Spades}{8-Clubs} of Badecker and take down the pot.

The pot put Verspui almost even in chips with Badecker.
