Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Makowsky Not Going Anywhere

Shamus • Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

A player in middle position opened with a raise, and Daniel Makowsky defended his big blind. The flop came {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Makowsky checked, the raiser continued for 900, and Makowsky called. Both players then checked the {7-Diamonds} turn.

The river brought the {J-Hearts} and another check from Makowsky. His opponent hesitated, then checked behind. Makowsky tabled {J-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for a pair of jacks, and with some frustration his opponent showed his {8-}{8-}.

"I'm not going anywhere," said Makowsky across the table. He now has about 40,000, one of the larger stacks in the room at present.
