Event #34: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Cohen Rebounds with Six Million Chip Pot

• Nivel 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

From the button, Mark Schmid raised to 200,000 and Justin Cohen called.

The flop was {4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Cohen led out for 500,000. Schmid thought for a bit and slid in the chips. The turn was the {2-Clubs} and Cohen announced a bet of 900,000. Once again, Schmid made the call.

The river was the {3-Spades} and Cohen fired a final bet of 1.5 million. Schmid thought for a long time before finally deciding to call. Cohen sat back up when he heard this, leaned over the table and flung down {10-Hearts}{2-Spades} for two pair. This caused Schmid to flinch in anger and muck his cards.

This pot creates a large shift in momentum as well as the chip lead. Schmid is left with just what he started heads up play with, 2.4 million. Once again, Cohen has a 3 to 1 chip lead with an eye on that bracelet.
