Event #83: $1,500 The Closer

Borenstein Spikes River to Survive

BrandonBloom • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Kenny Hallaert opened in the hijack and Jonathan Borenstein jammed in the big blind for 1.54 million. Hallaert asked for a count and called.

Jonathan Borenstein: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Kenny Hallaert: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}

The players were flipping and the dealer burned and turned. Borenstein started to get up as his future looked bleak as the dealer spread the {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. The {9-Spades} came on the turn to give him some more outs, and the {8-Spades} hit the river to keep him alive.

"Ooh, that's a river," Borenstein said as he chipped up.
