Great Start for "The Caveman"
Steven van Zadelhoff, longtime grinder and nicknamed "The Caveman" these days because of his big beard, is up to 52,000. He started out dropping down to 20,000 but then he won all his losses back and then some.
First he saw a player raise it up to 1,000 and he was able to squeeze to 4,000 after someone else called. Just the initial-raiser made the call and both players checked the flop. The turn brought a into play and Van Zadelhoff called a 5,000 bet. The river was a and now Van Zadelhoff called an 8,000 bet. The player showed offsuit while Van Zadelhoff tabled for the best hand.
Not long after both players were tangled up in a big pot again. Van Zadelhoff had top-two and the nut flush draw on the turn with and won the big pot without further improving.
