Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Shannon Shorr Chipping Up

• Level 4: 100-200, 0 ante

Before the flop, a player from middle position raised to 600 and was called from the hijack, cutoff and Shannon Shorr in the small blind.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Shorr checked. The original raiser c-bet to 1,500 and was called only by Shorr.

The turn brought a {3-Diamonds} and both players checked to see a river, which was the {7-Spades}. Shorr then under-bet the pot for just 900, which induced a raise from the middle position player to 2,800. Shorr thought it over a bit before re-raising the other player all in.

"You play great," Shorr's opponent said as he mucked his {A-}{J-} face up for top pair, top kicker.

Shorr is now up to around 29,000.
