Event 17: Linster Makes Good Call

$5,300 Championship NLH $10 Million Guaranteed (Re-Entry)

Level 11: 500/1,000/100 ante

Mike Linster 3-bet 5,500 pre-flop and got a call from seat 7.  The flop fell Kc7h6d and both players checked.

Turn was the 2h and seat 7 bet 4,300.  Mike called.

River was the 8h and seat 7 bet 11,300, more than half Mike’s remaining chips.  Mike took about a minute, then made the call.

His opponent was reluctant to show, so Mike tabled his JsJc.  His opponent mucked and Mike chipped up to about 57k.

“I was up to 100k” Mike said.  Apparently on a previous hand, he had A9 suited on a flop of A 9 4 — but his opponent had pocket 4s and had flopped a set.  Mike shipped a big piece of his stack on that hand, but is working his way back now.
