Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Michael Hopkins Hangs 'Em High With Two Pair

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

With the flop reading {6-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, a player bet 2,500 from late position and Michael Hopkins three-bet for his last 9,075. His opponent decided to look Hopkins up and called with his {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} for top pair and a strong kicker. Hopkins revealed the {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for top two-pair, however, and his opponent was in bad shape.

The turn came {K-Spades}, providing the opponent with a glimmer of hope. He could now spike any king, queen or jack to claim the pot.

River: {3-Spades}

The brick on the river sealed the win for Hopkins and he doubled up to nearly 20,000.
