Event #6: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

JJ Gives it the Ol' College Try-ba

• Nivel 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante

JJ Liu has chipped up through Chris Tryba as we reach the business end of Day 1 of Event #6 at the Rio.

We caught the action on a flop that read {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{8-Hearts}; two players in early position both checked to Tryba who opened the betting. Liu was the only caller, so it was heads-up the turn of the {J-Spades}.

Tryba check-called Liu's bet and check-called again after the dealer produced the river {6-Hearts}. Liu showed down {A-Hearts}{J-Spades} for two pair and Tryba mucked his hand.

Both players are now holding stacks worth 33,000 in chips.
