Event #20: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Somerville Gives Some Back

• Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

From under the gun, our new chip leader, Jason Somerville, raised to 100,000. Action folded to Yashar Darian in the big blind who made the call. The flop came {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Darian checked to Somerville who bet 150,000. Darian thought for just a few seconds before announcing he was all in for 1.4 million. Somerville checked his cards again and made the call.

Somerville: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}
Darian: {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

Daniel Negreanu, who is friend with Somerville, is drinking and decided to narrate the hand to the crowd. "We need a seven! Give us a seven... or a nine would be ok too," he said. The turn was close, but neither. It was the {8-Hearts} and Somerville needed one of the two remaining Aces. Negreanu let everyone know in case anybody was falling behind. The river was the {j-Diamonds} and Somerville gives some of his new found chips back to Darian.
