Gruissem Takes The First One

KaleGozer • Level 7: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

German juggernaut Philipp Gruissem just sat down at a table with Mike McDonald, and the two got involved in a pot right away. From early position, McDonald opened to 9,500. Gruissem called in late position, as did both players in the blinds.

All players checked the {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} flop and {8-Diamonds} turn. On the {10-Hearts} river, McDonald bet 25,000 and only Gruissem called. McDonald tabled {A-}{Q-} for a rivered broadway straight, but Gruissem held {10-}{10-} for a full house to scoop up his first pot.
