Dirksen Survives on the River

dsalituro • Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

Dustin Dirksen shoved his last 85,000 from middle position and Meikle Partin called in the small blind.

Dustin Dirksen: {k-Spades}{2-Spades}
Meikle Partin: {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Dirksen was dominated and fell further beyond when the {j-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop gave Partin a pair of jacks.

Dirksen was already standing up with his backpack on as the {4-Diamonds} came on the turn. "Three ball," he called for and got his wish as the {3-Clubs} on the river completed his straight.

"I'm not stopping until I get 17,000,000," he yelled as he sat back down.

The next hand, Dirksen was all in again with {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs} against Bruno Fitoussi's {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} and doubled up once more as the board ran out {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Spades}{j-Spades}.
