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

Couple of Big Lay Downs

• Taso 3: 400-800, 100 ante

Players are being faced with tough decisions all over the room, here are a few we've noticed in the past ten minutes.

  • With a {3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} board spread in the middle David Sands faced a bet of 11,800 from Jeff Madsen. With around 20,000 already in the pot this was no small pot. Sands took a few minutes and seemed lost in contemplation. Eventually he opted to fold though.
  • A table away we found Carlos Mortensen facing a similar situation. A {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} board was lain out in front of him. He faced a 15,000 chip all in bet and took a long while to figure out if calling was the right move. After a few minutes he as well though folding was best and deposited his cards in the muck.
