Event #27: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Idema Pulling Away


On a flop of {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} in a blind-vs-blind situation, Matthew Gallin bet from the small blind only to have Dan Idema raise from the big. Gallin made the call and then check-called a bet on the {K-Hearts} turn. The same action occurred on the {8-Hearts} river and Idema rolled over {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} for trip kings.

Gallin seemed frustrated as he flicked his cards in the muck, dropping to 300K in the process. Meanwhile, Idema is pulling away from the pack with 2.5 million and looking to accomplish what he failed to do last year, clear the entire field and capture the bracelet.
