Event #38: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em (Four Handed)

Pham and Schwarmann Continue to Butt Heads

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

David Pham and Nick Schwarmann are the tournament's chip leaders and they are continuing to butt heads. Surely it is only a matter of time before another huge hand develops.

Pham opened on the button and Schwarmann defended his big blind with a call. Schwarmann then check-called a 28,000 bet on the {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop, before both players checked the {8-Spades} turn. Schwarmann then checked the {J-Clubs} river, only to see Pham bet 67,000.

Schwarmann's face spoke a thousands words; he did not believe Pham's story. One minute passed before Schwarmann picked up his card, and threw them into the muck.

"Nice hand, sir. I had a nice pair," said Schwarmann.
