Thurlow Takes Big Pot Into Break; Chip Counts from Dinner

HillKerby • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Three minutes into the break, Justin Thurlow and Eric Torgerson were still involved in a large pot.

Thurlow was on the opened to 50,000 and Torgerson called from the small blind. They saw a flop of {2-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and Torgerson check-called a continuation-bet of 60,000 from Thurlow.

The turn fell {2-Clubs} and Torgerson check-called a second barrel of 120,000. The river came {3-Hearts} and Torgerson checked once more. Thurlow fired out 225,000, sending Torgerson deep into the tank. Eventually, he folded.

"Here, I'll show one," said Thurlow showing {a-Hearts} to show that he had the nut flush as the pot was sent his way.
