Event #32: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Biggest Pot of the Tournament

Marc McLaughlin began the action by raising to 160,000. Kirk Caldwell made the call and we were off to see a flop. The flop came {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Caldwell fired out first, betting 200,000.

McLaughlin decided to make it 600,000 total and Caldwell fired right back, three-betting to 1,600,000. McLaughlin announced a four-bet all in and Caldwell made the call.

Caldwell: {J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
McLaughlin: {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

The turn brought the {10-Spades}, keeping Caldwell in the lead. McLaughlin needed either a heart or a king to scoop the pot. Unfortunately for him, the river brought the {8-Diamonds} and Caldwell was able to scoop the pot. McLaughlin could do nothing but stare at the board, emotionless for about a minute straight while the chips were being counted out.
