Event #48: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Small Pots Go to Big Stacks

Djinn • Level 23: 12,000-24,000, 24,000 ante

Ryan Olisar and Michael Finstein have taken down the first river-reaching pots of the new level. Olisar's was built blind on blind vs. Pedro Marques: he limped and Marques checked to see a {4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Hearts} flop. Olisar check-raised Marques' flop bet of 45,000 to 150,000 and received a call. Action slowed completely on the {6-Hearts} turn and when the {7-Diamonds} river was checked through, Olisar showed {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a flopped two pair to win the pot.

On the second table, Ben Keeline opened for 48,000 and Michael Finstein called in position, along with big blind James Hughes. Hughes folded to Keeline's 60,000 bet on the {6-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{j-Diamonds} flop, Finstein didn't. Both players checked the {5-Diamonds} turn, Keeline check-folding the {j-Clubs} river.
