Another Railbird Prediction Devestates Kottler

Nivel 24 : 12,000/24,000, 4,000 ante

Our opening post title for today was "Welcome back, welcome back welcome back" and while unintentional at first, seemed to predict Jeremy Kottler would have a good day. After all, it was Welcome Back Kotter, and if you say it fast enough, it sounds the same.

But it was another prediction that got the best of Kottler at this unofficial final table. From the cutoff, he raised to 54,000 before Trevor Vanderveen moved all in for 570,000 from the button. When the blinds folded, Kottler had the dealer count it out fully and began removing chunks of his stack that would be committed if he made the call. Eventually, he stuck in one column of those chips and call.

Kottler: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Vanderveen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The flop came down {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. While that didn't directly improve Vanderveen's hand, it did give him a straight draw and backdoor flush draw. However, two of the Tens that would make his straight were being held by Kottler. The turn was the {3-Spades} and Kottler was down to just eight outs with one card left. Someone on the set here in the Amazon Room called out for the Ten of clubs. The tournament director instructed the dealer to show us the river and sure enough there it was, the {10-Clubs}. Vanderveen fist-pumped and began walking around the set at a furious pace.

With the loss of the 1.2 million chip pot, Kottler will leave for the dinner break as our short-stack with just 167,000
