Event #22: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em

Truong Waits Until the River

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Patrick Truong and Timur Margolin were heads-up in a battle of the big stacks in a three-bet pot. With around 225,000 in the middle, the dealer fanned the flop of {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Both players checked and the {6-Spades} landed on the turn.

Margolin checked from the big blind again and Truong decided to see the river from middle position. The river was the {2-Clubs} and Margolin checked for the third time. Truong finally tossed in a bet of 180,000 and Margolin looked him up. Truong tabled {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and that was good enough to force Margolin to muck his cards.
