Event #28: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

English Makes the Call

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

James English just came over to tell us about how he became one of our chip leaders.

First to act preflop, he raised to 2,400 with {j-}{j-} and received calls from a player in late position and the big blind. The flop was {8-}{4-}{5-} and English led out for 4,400. The player in position called while the player in the blinds got out of the way.

The turn was a {9-} and English slowed down with a check. His opponent bet 13,000 and he called. The river was a {q-}. English, who checked the river, was forced to tank "enough to make the entire table hate him," after his opponent moved all in. Eventually, he made the call and his opponent had just Ace-high.

English has now reached the 85,000 mark.
