Event #20: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Wilkerson Avoids Blowup

From middle position, one time chip leader Dylan Wilkerson, raised to 1,300 and the player to his left called. However, the small blind moved in for 3,250 and after a moments thought, Wilkerson isolated the all in player by moving his stack in as well. The third player, who had just slightly less chips than Wilkerson, quickly folded {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} face up to the surprise of the table. Wilkerson sheepishly turned over {j-Spades}{8-Spades} and was behind the {a-Spades}{6-Hearts} of the all in player.

The flop fell {3-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs} improving Wilkerson's hand. The turn was the {10-Clubs} and river {q-Diamonds} which officially gave him the pot. However, the table had a good yell when the river fell because it would have given the {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} broadway. Wilkerson got a little lucky that the player folded and is now up to 29,500.
