Verenko Gets Tricky With Ace-King

Level 18 : 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Jacke Glazier raised to 16,000 in early position, 2012 WSOP bracelet winner Simon Charette called in the hijack seat, and Roman Verenko defended his big blind. The trio checked on a flop of {a-Spades}{6-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}, and the turn brought the {10-Clubs}. Verenko and Glazier both checked, prompting Charette to bet 24,000. Verenko check-raised to 54,000, and only Charette called.

The river was the {7-Spades}, Verenko led out for 104,000, and Charette tank-called. Verenko turned over {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for trip aces.

"Wow," Charette said, genuinely shocked. "Nice hand."

Verenko chipped up to 615,000, while Charette is down to 135,000.
