Event #4: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Melius Stays Put

• Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Facing an early position raise David “Barth” Melius moved all in from the cut-off. The blinds foded and the original raiser called and showed {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}.

Melius stood up as he turned over {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. His big ace looked like it was going to come up short and he was resigned to going home.

The cards fell {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. The river gave Melius a jack high straight and he was forced to sit down again and stack his chips.
