[user101598] • Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Mike "umpa21" Ziemba raised to 1,800 from early position, Tom Marchese called in the cutoff, and Carlos Mortensen called on the button. The three took a flop of {q-Clubs}{j-Spades}{k-Spades}, Ziemba led out for 4,100, and only Mortensen called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs}, Ziemba fired out another 6,800, and Mortensen called.

The two checked on the river ({4-Hearts}), and Ziemba showed {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for kings and fours. Mortensen checked his cards one last time, shook his head, then slid them into the muck.
