Alexander Experiences Some Significant Shrinkage

• Nivel 13: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante
Jason Alexander

We picked up the action on the flop, heads-up between Jason Alexander and Jonathan Frey. The board showed {2-Spades} {2-Clubs} {9-Spades}, and the big pot hints at a three- or possibly even four-bet preflop. On that flop, Frey checked, and he called a bet of 40,000 from Alexander. That led them to the {Q-Spades} turn, and Frey took the betting lead in a big way. He slid all 137,000 of his remaining chips forward, and Alexander made the call with a similar stack. Cards up, gents.

Alexander: {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}
Frey: {A-Spades} {10-Spades}

Frey had turned his flush, and Alexander needed to find a four-out full house to keep himself afloat. With the ESPN cameras hustling into place, the river {7-Spades} completed the board, a blank for Alexander. When his chips were counted down, he was left with just 5,900 while Frey climbs up over 400,000.
