Steve Blackmon

There is a few thousand in the pot, and the flop read 7s4h2s when Steve Blackmon bet 1,500 from middle position. Vanessa Kade raised to 4,000 on the button, and the small blind check-called. Blackmon called as well before the turn fell 8h.

Kade bet 6,000, and the small blind check-raised all in for 10,300. Blackmon tanked before check-calling, and Kade called to cover the small blind as well. The river brought the Jd and the two remaining live players checked.

The small blind showed 8s6c, and it was not enough to hold up against either the 9d9c held by Kade, nor the QhQd that won the hand for Blackmon. He stacked up 85,000 after collecting the pot, and Kade was at 17,800.

Steve Blackmon – 85,000 (212 bb)
Vanessa Kade – 17,800 (44 bb)
