Sanchez Calls Mortensen Down

Level 13 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Jordan Morgan opened to 7,000 from under the gun, and Diego Sanchez called in the hijack, as did Morten Mortensen in the big blind.

The flop fell {7-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, and all three players checked. The {A-Diamonds} landed on the turn. Mortensen checked, Morgan bet 13,000, and Sanchez called before Mortensen check-raised to 45,000. Morgan folded, and Sanchez called. The river brough the {3-Spades}, and Mortensen bet 88,000. After nearly four minutes of deliberation, Sanchez called and tabled his {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs} to defeat Mortensen's {J-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

As Sanchez climbed to 375,000, Mortensen took a dive down to 155,000 in chips.
