Getting There

$560 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Blinds 1K/2K Ante 200

The board showed Ad6s2d and there were three players all in.

Seat 7: Ah6c – looking good with top two pair

Seat 8: QdJd – behind but not dead with a flush draw

Seat 9: 6h6d – ahead with his set but still needs to fade a diamond or ace to knock both the other players out

The turn… Js and Seat 9 is still ahead. The river… 3d and Seat 8 jumps out of his seat and claps his hands in excitement three times. A near triple up to 80K and Seat 7 is eliminated. A disappointed Seat 9 sits there quietly, still alive, but not nearly as good as he could have been if the river had not been a diamond.

There are 55 players remaining as we head into the final hour of play.
