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

Mortensen Moving Up

• Taso 2: 300-600, 75 ante

With a {10-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{9-Hearts} board exposed in the middle of the felt Carlos Mortensen faced a bet of 2,100 from Terrence Chan. Mortensen unfazed by the bet quickly raised to 6,000. A call was made and both players were granted access to the turn.

When the {5-Hearts} landed on fourth street both players seemed to be cautious of each other and each opted to check. The {a-Diamonds} on the river brought a bet of 8,500 from Chan. Mortensen became playfully disgruntled, throwing his hands up every once in a while in a questioning matter. He even went as far to ask the dealer why a {8-Hearts} couldn't have came on the turn. After a few minutes or so Mortensen placed the call directly in front of Chan giving credit to the fact that he was more than likely beat.

Chan flipped over {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} for a pair of queens and Mortensen countered by flipping over {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a king high flush
