Steve Olivier

Steve Olivier was all in for about 450,000 in the big blind with Kh9c against Joseph Hinton on the button with 10s8s.

The board Kd7s4c3dJc, giving Olivier a pair of kings to double up.

A few hands later, Hinton limped on the button, Olivier raised to 150,000, and Hinton called.

The flop was Jd2d6s and Olivier checked to Hinton who bet 225,000. Olivier check-raised all in for 1,000,000 and Hinton called 10d6d for a pair of sixes with a flush draw. Olivier was ahead with Jc10c a pair of jacks, but slightly.

The 2c turn and 5c river completed the board, safe for Olivier to double into the chip lead.

Shortly thereafter, both agreed to an even chop. As the chip leader, Steve Olivier was the official winner of Event 9 for $12,478.

Joseph Hinton was the official runner-up for $12,477.

A recap of the event will be posted later this morning.
