Event #24: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Smith Takes a Hit Early

• Nivel 1: 50-75, 0 ante

After a raise preflop and a board reading {k-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, Gavin Smith fired out a bet of 525 which was quickly called by his opponent. The {7-Spades} turned and Smith continued his aggression by pushing out a bet of 1,125, which again was quickly called. The {9-Hearts} came on the river and Smith checked. His opponent shot out a bet of 3,000 chips.

Smith tanked for a while before saying "There's no way you'd think king-queen is good here." Eventually Smith slapped his cards into the muck, showing the table {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. Smith is down to about 13,000.
