2013 World Series of Poker

Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Sears Nearing 1.4 Million

Level 20 : 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Nikolai Sears led out for 65,000 on a flop of {2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. His opponent, Marcel Luske, called.

The turn was the {9-Spades}, Sears slowed down, checking to the Flying Dutchman, who quickly slid forward 135,000. Sears called.

Both players knuckled when the {a-Diamonds} completed the board, and Luske showed {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a pair of eights. It was no good against Sears' {a-Spades}{q-Spades} for a pair of queens, however, and Luske fell to 225,000 chips. Sears now has 1.38 million.
