Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Filtz Retakes Control

Shamus • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

After getting those chips back, Matt Jarvis has returned them in short order to Justin Filtz over the course of a just a couple of hands.

In the first, the pair had already built a sizable pot by the turn when the board showed {Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. Jarvis checked, Filtz bet 275,000, and Jarvis made the call. The river brought the {3-Clubs} and Jarvis checked once more. Acting more quickly than usual, Filtz bet 850,000 and after some deliberation Jarvis called. Filtz tabled {5-Spades}{3-Hearts} for a full house, and Jarvis mucked.

On the next hand, Jarvis raised to 165,000 from the button and Filtz called. The pair checked the {Q-Spades}{A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop and {2-Spades} turn. The river was the {5-Spades}, and Filtz bet 250,000. Jarvis thought a second, then called. Filtz showed {K-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for king-high, and Jarvis sheepishly mucked his hand. "Wow, that's sick," he said. "I called you with jack-high."

A bit of frustration, perhaps, from Jarvis, who is back down to 3.2 million. Filtz, meanwhile, is pushing 7.8 million.
