Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Nathan Keeps Climbing


With only 45 minutes to go until we wrap things up, the action has slowed down considerably, but Rayan Nathan has been hard at work building up his stack and as it stands, he's close to 600,000 in chips.

Our PokerNews field reporter caught up with the action on the turn between Nathan and an opponent on a board that read {2-Hearts}{K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}; the player in the big blind checked to Nathan who bet 30,000. The big blind called, then check-called Nathan's bet of 35,000 after the river of the {J-Spades}.

The small blind showed down {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for a pair of jacks and a busted flush draw, but Nathan's {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for top pair was good enough to take it down.
