Event #12: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty

Obst Plays the Hand Beautifully

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

James Obst opened from under the gun, a player in the big blind defended and the dealer flipped over {j-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. The big blind opponent bet 33,000 and Obst called.

A {q-Clubs} landed as the turn card and the big blind opponent moved all in for around 145,000. Obst snap-called, tabling {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} for an overpair of aces and his opponent turned over {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for just a pair of jacks.

The river came down a {k-Clubs} and Obst scooped in the pot with his bullets, sending his opponent to the payout desk.
