Nick Binger limped on the button while David Bach checked his option in the big blind, leading to a flop of {Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Bach checked, Binger bet 75,000, Bach check-raised to 225,000, Bach moved all in, and Binger called off.

Bach: {Q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Binger: {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Binger's supporters went nuts when the {10-Hearts} hit the turn to give him a flush and guarantee their man at least half the pot. Now imagine that excitement amplified times two as the {K-Spades} bricked on the river and allowed Binger to scoop the pot.

He is right back in the thick of things with 2.26 million.

Heads Up: David Bach & Nick Binger

David Bach limped on the button and Nick Binger checked his option in the big blind to bring about the {10-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop. Binger lead out for 75,000, Bach called, and the {9-Spades} hit the turn. Both players checked, leading to the {2-Diamonds} on the river.

At this point Binger bet 250,000, Bach raised to 750,000, and Binger called.

It was a bit of a cooler for Binger, who held nines full against the superior tens full of Bach.

"You just called, Nick," Dan Shak offered support from the rail. "It was a good just call."

All In and a Chop

[user153638] • Nivel 27: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

David Bach raised to 150,000 on the button and Nick Binger came along for the ride in the big blind. The latter player proceeded to check-call a bet of 300,000 on the {9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop, which was followed by two checks on the {5-Clubs} turn.

When the {5-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, Binger bet 575,000, Bach raised pot, and Binger called off.

Binger: {A-Diamonds}{3-Spades}(X)(X)
Bach: {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Bach had the high hand locked up with his full house, but Binger held the nut low. It was a chopped pot, which quickly dampened the excitement that temporarily gripped the spectators.
