Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

A Pair is Good for Mitchell

Level 14 : 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante

When you're short-stacked, even the smallest pot can make a difference and Robert Mitchell just won one of those against Jeff Madsen. The four-time bracelet winner had opened to 12,000 under the gun and Mitchell called on his left. With the two players in seats 9 and 1, Madsen had a quick peek around the dealer before the flop was dealt.

It fell {8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and with numerous straight draws out, Madsen checked and Mitchell did the same. The turn was a {k-Diamonds} and Madsen bet min, tossing a 5k chip into the middle. Mitchell peeled and they heade to the river. It was the {8-Clubs}, pairing the bottom card and once again it went check-check.

Robert Mitchell: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Jeff Madsen: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}

Mitchell had the better two pair and added a welcome pot to his stack.
