Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Lindgren Wheelin' Over Tran


We caught up with the action just as Erick Lindgren, who was on the small blind, bet 11,000 on the turn with the board reading {2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. JC Tran made the call from the big blind.

The river revealed the {A-Spades}, prompting a 17,000 bet from Lindgren. Tran counted out a call and shipped it into the middle. Lindgren showed the {3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a rivered wheel. Tran mucked his cards.

"So that's how you make a final table?" another player asked.

"...Gotta make wheels!" Lindgren replied.
