Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Shulman Rivers Straight to Crack Aces and Double


David Peters started the action with an open to 24,000 from the hijack seat. In the next seat in the cutoff, Tai Lam reraised to 74,000 and then Barry Shulman reraised all in for 278,000 on the button. Action folded back to Peters and he gave it up. Lam snap-called and showed the {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}. Shulman held the {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Shulman nailed a jack-high straight to win the pot.

"Woooooooooo! That's my boy!" yelled out Allyn Jaffrey Shulman as she raised her glass above her head in celebration. Shulman was excited as well and popped out of his chair, knocking it over on accident.

Shulman collected the pot to finish the night on a strong note while Lam was left shaking his head.
