Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Running Like Deeb

Shaun Deeb

From the cutoff seat, Shaun Deeb came in raising to 5,500. Leonid Bilokur was on the button and tapping away furiously on his iPad, and he made a reraise to 12,800. Deeb studied for a long while, asked to see Bilokur's stack, then four-bet to 31,700. Bilokur quickly slid out a tower of his high-value chips totaling 83,800, leaving just a few thousand behind. Deeb shoved in, and the cards were on their backs.

Deeb: {10-Hearts} {J-Hearts}
Bilokur: {Q-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}

Deeb seemed perfectly confident in the abilities of the mighty jack-ten. Sure enough, the {7-Hearts} {3-Spades} {3-Hearts} flop gave him a sweat, and the turn {5-Hearts} filled in the flush. Deeb needed to fade another heart to secure the knockout, and the river {8-Clubs} did just that.

Bilokur tipped over a couple chairs on his way out the door, while Deeb has stacked his way up to about 235,000 chips now.

After the hand, Matt Marafioti needled a bit about the light shove.

"Just pretend I called the three-bet and check-shoved the flop," he said with a smirk.
