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

Valentine's Patience Pays Off

• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

After action folded to Sridhar Natarajan, one of the bigger stacks remaining, in middle position, he announced "All in," which got folds from everyone except for Brian Valentine, who made the call from his big blind.

Brian Valentine: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Sridhar Natarajan: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Valentine was way ahead preflop, and his hand held on the {5-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} runout. Natarajan then told Valentine that he was just trying to steal the blinds and that he was glad Valentine's patience finally paid off for him.
