Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Dempsey Hoping for a Day 2

• Taso 3: 50-100, 0 ante

James Dempsey's playing his 10th event of the summer here today, and all he wants is to make a day two. He's making a good fist of it as he rose to 13,500 chips after getting Simon Charette off a hand.

Charette opened from the hijack and Dempsey was the only caller from thew small blind. The flop was spread as {8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{j-Spades} and Dempsey check-called a 350 bet before both players checked the {7-Clubs} turn.

Dempsey took this as his opportunity to to lead for lead for 1,100 on the {6-Spades} river. Charette didn't have the goods and folded.
