Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Cross Catches a King to Chip Up

[user197301] • Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

After her opponent pushed all-in for his last 9,000 chips, Valerie Cross took a few seconds before announcing a call. Cross showed her {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and found herself racing against her opponent's {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}.

Flop: {K-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Cross paired her king and took the lead in the hand, while her opponent was left to call for a seven. The turn brought the {8-Spades} and the other player picked up a gutshot straight draw, but the {3-Clubs} on the river was safe for Cross, forcing her opponent to the rail.
