Level 13:  2,000/4,000 with a 4,000 ante

Kyle Bowker

With the board showing Js9h2d5s on the turn, Kyle Bowker bet 75,000 from the small blind, and his opponent tanked for a while before calling from UTG+1.

The river card paired the board with the 5h, Bowker checked, and his opponent moved all in.

Bowker went into the tank for several long minutes before he quietly called all in for 115,000, and his opponent said, “You’re good” as he showed Qs10h for queen high.

Bowker turned over AsKs to win the pot with ace high and double up in chips.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after Level 16 (about 6:35 pm), and action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 12:20 am.
