Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Lindgren Loses Half His Stack


We caught the action on the flop, which had come down {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Lindgren bet out 4,500 in middle position, and the player on the button min raised to 9,000. It was back to Lindgren, and he tanked for a bit before putting out a stack of orange T5,000 chips that was enough to put his opponent all in. His opponent snap called, and the cards were tabled.

Lindgren: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Opponent: {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

According to the Pokernews odds calculator, Lindgren held the slightest of edges, as he was a 51% favorite. However, that all changed when the {a-Diamonds} hit the turn. Lindgren would need to catch another ace or nine to win the pot, but the river brought the {3-Hearts}.

Lindgren shipped the chips to his opponent, knocking him down to 60,000 in the process.
