2013 World Series of Poker

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

Deeb Lets One Go, Intensity in the Air

Level 11 : 800-1,600, 200 ante

Christopher Lindh raised to 3,500 preflop, and Freddy Deeb three-bet to 11,000. Lindh thought for a minute, and as he was thinking, you could feel the intensity in the air. This was the first hand of the day, and play has a distinctly different aura than yesterday. Players are starting to think not only about making day 2 or 3, but making the money, appearing at the final table, and even winning the bracelet.

After a tense minute, Lindh four-bet to 27,500, and now Deeb took his time making his decision. After another tense minute, Deeb called, and the dealer brought {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{a-Spades} for the flop. Lindh led out for 22,000, Deeb thought for a minute, then slid his cards to the dealer.
