Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Kaplan Over Heinz in the Blinds

Shamus • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

A blind-vs.-blind battle here, between Gregory Kaplan (small) and Pius Heinz (big). Nice and friendly, for the most part, until the river.

Before the flop it folded around to Kaplan who raised to 225,000 and Heinz called the raise. The flop came {6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} and both checked. Both also checked the {J-Spades} turn. Friendly, friendly.

Then came the river, the {K-Hearts}. Kaplan checked again, and this time Heinz pushed out a bet of 765,000. Kaplan considered, then check-raised to 1.8 million, sending Heinz into the tank. After a long think, Heinz finally called Kaplan's raise. Kaplan tabled {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts} for two pair, and Heinz mucked.

Kaplan has 6.55 million now, while Heinz slips to about 4 million.
