2014 World Series of Poker

Event #56: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 2

Altman Crippled

Level 20 : 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Brian Altman opened the action with a raise to 22,000 and then four-bet all in when Robert Merulla from one seat over three-net him. Merulla snap-called with the {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} and Altman was in bad shape with the {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. The {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{9-Spades}{Q-Hearts} board failed to improve his hand and Altman is now down to five big blinds.
