Event #36: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em


[user66118] • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Under the gun, Bruce Vandervort opened the pot to 7,500, and Jeremy Vaughn reraised to 20,500 out of position in the small blind. Vandervort made the call, and the two of them took a {9-Spades} {8-Hearts} {5-Hearts} flop. Vaughn checked, and Vandervort took his cue to bet 20,000 at the pot. It drew an all-in check-raise from Vaughn, and the snap-call that came was not good news for him.

Vandervort: {8-Spades} {8-Diamonds}
Vaughn: {A-Spades} {Q-Clubs}

Vaughn was drawing dead to running straight cards, and the turn {6-Spades} brought a chop into play. The river {3-Clubs} was a big blank, though, and Vaughn has been parted with the rest of his stack. By virtue of that knockout, Vandervort is all the way up to the top spot with 330,000.
