Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Straight for Staudenmaier

[user80015] • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Luke Staudenmaier limped in from the small blind only to have Michael McClain up the ante to 8,000. Staudenmaier made the call before check-calling 11,000 on the {7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop as the {6-Hearts} was checked through on the turn.

When the river of the {9-Diamonds} landed, Staudenmaier pushed out a 35,000-chip bet which McClain called. Staudenmaier tabled his {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for a turned straight to collect the pot to move to 260,000 as McClain slipped to 80,000 in chips.
