Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Racener Felts Martin

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

We arrived to the table and John Racener and Jesse Martin had all their chips in the middle after Maurice Hawkins folded what he said was {9-}{9-}. Martin was in good shape to double up with {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} against Racener's {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}.

The flop changed nothing as it came {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, but the {Q-Spades} on the turn moved Racener into the lead. The river was the {J-Hearts} and a dejected Martin walked off, almost exiting the room before realizing he needed to collect his winnings.

In addition to Racener, Hawkins, and Dwyte Pilgrim, Table 440 also has Chris Klodnicki seated there making it one of the toughest table left in the field.
