Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Schemion Has Evangelista Wary

• Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

With approximately 25,000 already in the pot and a board of {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, Ole Schemion made a bet of 13,500. His opponent in the hand, Mark Evangelista, with a hoodie drawn snugly over his head and sunglasses on, stared at Schemion directly for nearly a minute before making the call.

The river was the {3-Diamonds} and Schemion thought for a few seconds and checked. His opponent checked behind and Schemion mucked his hand.

"Do I have to show," asked Evangelista, and he was told that he did. He tabled {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the king-high flush. Only the ace of diamonds or five of diamonds would have beaten him, but out of respect for the top German pro he had decided against making a river bet.
