Event 50: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Smith Checks it Down and Scoops


Action began on Gavin Smith under-the-gun, who opened to 4,400. He was called by the player directly behind him and another player in middle position. John Tabatabai then three-bet to 14,000 from the small blind. Smith called and everyone else folded for a heads-up pot.

Both players then proceeded to check down every street on the {9-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} board. Tabatabai tabled {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} and Smith flipped over {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for nines and fives and scooped the pot.

Gavin is sitting on 95,000.
