Event 33: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Great Call for Steinberg


Dylan Hortin opened the action from under the gun and made it 60,000 to anyone willing to pay to see a flop. Both blinds obliged and Joseph Marzicola made the call from the small blind, and Max Steinberg did the same from the big blind.

The flop came {K-Spades}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and all three players checked. The {5-Hearts} on the turn saw both blinds check and Hortin fire out 85,000. Marzicola folded and Steinberg made the call. The {10-Diamonds} on the river allowed for Steinberg to check, and Hortin to bet out 155,000.

This prompted Steinberg to go deep into the tank pondering what course of action was best. In the end though Steinberg made the call and flipped over {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for two-pair, kings and nines. Steinberg easily had Hortin beat, as all Hortin could produce was {8-Spades}{7-Spades}.
