Frank Stepuchin

With the board reading 10dAd4s, Adam Hendrix had 14,000 committed postflop in the cutoff, facing a raise from Frank Stepuchin in early position to about 38,000. Hendrix tanked for a little while.

“These solver ****er****ers,” said Stepuchin, with a grin.

Hendrix tanked for a little while longer before Stepuchin took out his phone and started the stopwatch app and slid it over to Hendrix.

“I’ll give you a minute before I call the clock,” said Stepuchin.

After about 30 seconds Hendrix reraised all in and Stepuchin called all in for about 25,000 more.

Hendrix:  AhJh
Stepuchin:  QcQs

Hendrix was ahead with a pair of aces and held through the Ks turn and 7d river to eliminate Stepuchin.
