Event #39: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Silverman Finds Aces

YorkshirePud • Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Takashi Ogura was all-in for 7,500 chips in the hijack seat and had been called by Adam Lalopoulos from the next seat along. Steven Silverman, on the button, squeezed all-in for 28,600 and Lalopoulos had a real decision to make.

"Jacks or something?" Lalopoulos asked, "I've got a pocket pair," he added.

Silverman sat stoic, apparently unfazed by Lalopoulos' questioning.

After almost a minute, Lalpoulos folded.

Silverman: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}
Ogura: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Silverman was a huge favorite to win the pot and when the flop came down {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} he was still in good shape. The {K-Diamonds} on the turn meant Silverman had to dodge a king or diamond, which he did when the river came the {10-Hearts}.
