Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Turner's Hero Call Propels Him to Chip Lead

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

We caught up with the action on the {2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop, where Jon "PearlJammer" Turner check-called a bet from his opponent.

The turn came the {Q-Hearts} and again Turner check-called, this time a 20,500 bet from his opponent.

The {K-Hearts} completed the board and Turner's opponent fired out 60,500, sending Turner into the tank. Turner counted out a call and convinced himself to chuck it into the middle.

"You're good," his opponent said, tabling {A-}{8-} for just ace-high. Turner flipped over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}, which was good enough to drag the sizable pot and earn him the chip lead - 613,000.
