Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

A Joe Tehand

Shamus • Nivel 14: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante
Joe Tehan

A player in middle position raised to 6,500, and it folded to Joe Tehan on the button who reraised to 19,300. The small blind then reraised over the top to 43,900. The player in the big blind tanked for some time before letting her hand go. The original raiser stepped aside as well, but Tehan made the call.

Tehan showed {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and his opponent {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}. (The big blind said she'd folded pocket tens.) The flop came {Q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and the jacks were still best, but the {K-Hearts} binked on the turn, pairing Tehan. The river was the {7-Spades}, and another player has hit the rail in Level 14.

Tehan is now hovering around the 400,000-chip mark.
