Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Arieh Will Take Half

Shamus • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

A player in middle position raised to 525, Josh Arieh called from the cutoff, and the player in the big blind called as well. The flop came all spades -- {K-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Spades} -- and it checked around. All three again checked the {J-Hearts} turn.

The river was the {9-Clubs}. It checked to Arieh who bet 1,050, the big blind quickly called, and the third player folded. "I have a straight," said Arieh. "A seven?" asked his opponent, and Arieh showed {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. His opponent tabled {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and the pair chopped the pot.

Arieh, who finished 13th in the just completed $50K Poker Player's Championship, has gotten off to a slow start today, and sits with about 22,000 now.
