Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Shakerchi Thwarts Schwartz

Talal Shakerchi

Talal Shakerchi raised to 57,000 from middle position and Noah Schwartz called from one seat over. Gus Hansen then reraised to 242,000 from the cutoff seat, and when it folded back around both Shakerchi and Schwartz called the reraise.

The flop came monotone — {Q-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} — and Shakerchi and Schwartz both quickly checked. Hansen took a moment to recheck his cards, and he checked as well.

The turn brought another club — the {2-Clubs} — and this time Shakerchi bet 365,000. Schwartz called, and after muttering a little Hansen folded.

Both of the remaining players then checked the {7-Spades} river. Shakerchi showed {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for a flush, and now Schwartz was the one muttering as he mucked.
