Event #56: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Schwartz and Merulla In Action On Table #439

• Nível 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Justin Schwartz

Thomas Muehloecker opened for 16,000 and folded to a raise to 40,000 from Justin Schwartz.

In the next hand Muehloecker opened again for 16,000 and got just a call from Robert Merulla in the big blind. They saw a flop of {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Muehloecker bet 18,500, but folded when Merulla check-raised him to 53,500.

Merulla was involved again in the next hand tangling this time with Schwartz. Schwartz raised to 16,000 and Merulla made it 40,500. Schwartz made the call and they went to a flop of {9-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{k-Clubs}.

Merulla checked how much Schwartz had behind, a little over 200,000, and bet 80,000. Schwartz slid out the call.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and a check from Merulla prompted Schwartz to bet 80,000. It didn’t take long for Merula to fold his {a-}{k-} face up.

“Aces are bottom of your range.” Merulla told him.

“You had no outs. It’s a good fold.” Schwartz told him
