Mortensen on a Heater

Morten Mortensen

We joined the action on the river as Morten Mortensen was easing his chips-stack into the middle after an all-in from Pavel Veksler. The board read {5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{A-Spades}{J-Clubs} and while Veksler had rivered two-pair with the {J-Spades}{8-Spades} , Mortensen had rivered the straight, holding {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} .

The Danish pro was down to just 15 big blinds not too long ago, but after a raise and take in the next hand, he has just crept over the million-chip mark.
