Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

A Big Flip for a Lot of Chips

• Nível 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

We missed the action unfold, but we do know a preflop raising war resulted in Stephen Hesse getting his sizable stack all in preflop against Isaac Baron.

Baron: {q-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Hesse: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

It was a flip for a pot of around 180,000, and Hesse needed to improve to stay alive. He didn't want to watch his fate and turned his head as the dealer put out the flop — {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Nothing for Hesse, though he didn't know it as he still had his back turned.

The {J-Spades} turn changed things a bit as a king would no longer win it for him (it'd give Baron a straight), but a queen would give him Broadway. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {6-Diamonds}. Hesse turned back around and discovered the bad news.
