With the board reading , 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 was ahead with a pair of aces and held through the turn and river to eliminate Stepuchin.
Adam Hendrix – 288,000 (192 bb)
Frank Stepuchin – Eliminated
