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

The Craft of Hitting

Webjoker • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Nick Petrangelo

Action folded to Nick Petrangelo in the hijack and the high stakes tournament regular opened to 20,000. His neighbor, Stoyan Obreshkov in the cutoff, three-bet to 53,000. Mickey Craft in the small blind called rather quickly, and the big blind gave up. Petrangelo four-bet to 160,000 and Obreshkov gave up. Craft snap-called to get to see a flop.

The flop came {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{J-Spades} and Craft checked. Petrangelo had 235,000 behind and moved all in. Craft once again snap-called.

Petrangelo: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}
Craft: {K-Spades}{6-Spades}

The {3-Spades} hit the turn giving Craft the flush. Petrangelo came up short with the {4-Clubs} on the river and made his exit. Craft is up to 3.4 million, making him the massive chipleader of the tournament.
