Heimiller Surging in Closing Minutes

Chad_Holloway • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Level 8 is winding down, and Dan Heimiller is just warming up.

In a recent hand, Heimiller opened for 1,100 from the button and then called when Bruno Portaro three-bet to 3,400 from the big blind. Both players checked the {10-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop, and then Portaro check-called a bet of 4,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn. When the {K-Clubs} completed the board on the river, meaning a queen would make Broadway, Portaro led out for 5,500 and Heimiller shifted in his chair.

The WSOP bracelet winner began talking to himself, shrugged, and then dropped in a call. A deflated Portaro tabled the {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Heimiller proudly rolled over the {a-Spades}{6-Clubs} for the win.
