Obrestad Finds Callers, Still Short-Stack

• Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Annette Obrestad won, but short-stacked.

Annette Obrestad only had 1,000 chips and put it in the pot in early position. Jason Mercier raised to 5,100. Sam Stein called from the button, Nicholas Levi called from the small blind and Beth Shak called from the big blind.

With five players going to the flop, and Obrestad's main pot at 5,000, the flop came {8-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}. Levi and Shak both checked, Mercier bet 8,700, Stein called and the blinds got out of the way. The turn came {K-Spades} and both active players checked. The {4-Clubs} river brought a 13,800 bet from Mercier.

Stein tanked for a few moments and asked Merceir, "What do you have behind? I want to know, I 'm not gonna raise you." Which brought laughs from the table. Stein called and all players tabled their hands.

Obrestad: {K-Hearts} {7-Spades}
Mercier: {A-Hearts} {Q-Spades}
Stein: {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}

Obrestad won the 5,000 main pot with two-pair, while the much larger side pot was split between Stein and Mercier.
