Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Huge Pot for Lindgren

Erick Lindgren

McLean Karr, who began the day with one of the big stacks, raised to 4,500 under the gun and received calls from three players, one being Erick Lindgren. When the flop fell {2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, action checked to Karr and he bet 12,700, which Lindgren and Chris Bell both called.

After the dealer burned and turned the {5-Diamonds}, Karr checked, Lindgren bet 24,000, Bell folded, Karr potted, and Lindgren called all in for 67,500.

Karr: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Lindgren: {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Lindgren was ahead with his flopped set and just needed to dodge a six, seven, and three on the river to survive, which is what he did when the {J-Hearts} peeled off. Just like that, Lindgren was sitting on a big stack while Karr was crippled.
