Event #89: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Shaw Scoops Huge Pot to Claim Chip Lead

• Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

The board read {7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{3-Spades} with around 700,000 in the middle already.

Carl Shaw moved two big stacks forward for a bet of 680,000 from under the gun which sent David "ODB" Baker into the tank in the middle position. Baker cut out calling chips, contemplated for a bit longer, and then called but mucked when Shaw tabled {a-Spades}{9-Hearts} for the turned top two pair.
