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

Early Moves

Shamus • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

The first three hands of heads-up saw a couple of button folds, then a raise-and-take for Matt Jarvis.

On the fourth hand, Jarvis limped from the button and Justin Filtz checked his option. The flop came {K-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. Filtz checked, Jarvis bet, and Filtz called. Both checked the {10-Hearts} turn. The river then brought the {Q-Hearts}. Filtz carved out 280,000 chips and set them forward, and after a bit of a think Jarvis made the call.

Filtz showed {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a busted straight draw, while Jarvis had {A-Spades}{5-Clubs} for a pair of fives. Jarvis bumps up close to 9 million, and Filtz down closer to 2 million.
