Event #28: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Frankenberger Takes One

[user101598] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Steve Merrifield opened to 45,000 and Andy Frankenberger called on the button. The flop fell {8-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and Merrifield led out for 75,000. Frankenberger raised to 164,000, Merrifield called, and the turn brought the {j-Spades}.

Merrifield slowed down, check-calling 150,000 from Frankenberger, and the river was the {5-Diamonds}. Both players checked.

Merrifield opened {10-}{8-} for a pair of eights, but Frankenberger tabled {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for a pair of jacks and shipped the pot.
