Event #20: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Wasserson Doubles Opponent

• Level 7: 300-600, 75 ante

On a flop of {J-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, Eric Wasserson and an opponent got it all in for his opponent's tournament life of 21,150. Wasserson held {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades} for top pair against his opponent's {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for middle pair and a flush draw.

The turn was the {6-Clubs}, giving Wasserson's opponent trip sixes for the lead. The board completed with the {Q-Spades} and Wasserson was forced to ship a good chunk across the table, relinquishing his chip lead in the process.

Gregg Doubles

• Level 7: 300-600, 75 ante

We arrived in time to find Tony Gregg all in before the flop for his last 7,575. Gregg held {A-Spades}{2-Hearts} against an opponent's {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}.

The flop of {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} helped both players, giving Gregg top pair and his opponent four to a club flush. The {J-Hearts} on the turn kept Gregg alive, and he simply needed to fade a club on the river to remain in the tournament. The river bricked out for his opponent, bringing the {2-Diamonds} and giving Gregg new life. The 2013 ONE DROP High Roller champion now sits on roughly 16,000 in chips.

Dani Stern recently busted from the same table.
