Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Smith's Stack Soars


In one of the last hands before the break, Gavin Smith raised to 18,000 from under the gun and the action folded around to the player in the cutoff who called before the button re-raised all in for 142,000. Smith then four-bet shoved and the cutoff player laid his hand down.

Button: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Smith: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}

There was no change to either hand on the flop of {K-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs}, nor on the turn of the {6-Diamonds}, but Smith spiked the {A-Clubs} on the river, knocking the button player out and is now on a stack that's worth almost 600,000!
