Mortensen Treads Water

• Level 5: 100-200, 0 ante

2001 WSOP Main Event champion Carlos Mortensen made it 450 from early position and got one caller. He fired again, making it 700 on the {q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop, but couldn shake his foe.

On the {j-Spades} turn they both checked, but when Mortensen sent out a bet of 1,000 chips on the {10-Spades} river, his opponent raise it to 2,400 total. Mortensen called with {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and his opponent had a very similar looking {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}.
