Garrett Wins Two in a Row

Brentharrington • Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

While Run Good Pro Grant Hinkle was making his rounds and saying goodbye, Ray Henson, another Run Good Pro raised from middle position.

He made it 6,000 to go and Nolan Garrett called in position.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} and Henson bet 6,000. Garrett called.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, pairing the board. Henson bet again, making it 10,000 to go. Garrett called again.

The river was the {2-Hearts} and Henson bet 10,000 again. This time Garrett raised all in for about 50,000 total. Henson folded.

Garrett then opened the next hand from middle position and both Nick Stille and Jerry Moore called from the blinds.

The flop was {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Stille and Moore checked to Garrett who bet 6,000. Stille was the lone caller.

Both players checked the {a-Clubs} on the turn and Stille bet 8,000 when the {7-Hearts} hit the river.

Garrett raised the river again, making it 28,000 to go and Stille folded.

Berthelsen Keeps the Pressue On

Brentharrington • Level 13: 2,000-3,000, 3,000 ante

Kevin Berthelsen has been pretty active so far today. He's already added 70,000 to his Day 2 starting stack.

He opened to 10,500 and Ray Rife three-bet to 35,000 from the big blind. Berthelsen called.

The flop came all hearts, {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Rife checked. Berthelsen moved all in with a stack that had Rife covered, but just barely. Rife didn't wait too long to fold and Berthelsen stacked even more chips.
