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

Bevand Crushed

Manuel Bevand opened the action with a raise under the gun, and it would be a bad thing in the end. Andy Frankenberger potted in the next seat over, and the two men got it all in right there. Frankenberger was the one at risk for 730,000, and Bevand had that just barely covered. The biggest pot of the tournament and the fate of the two men came down to a coin flip.

Bevand: {J-Clubs} {J-Hearts}
Frankenberger: {A-Clubs} {K-Clubs}

The tension was almost tangible, and we could feel Frankenberger's heart sink as the dealer rolled out a flop full of blanks: {Q-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {7-Hearts}.

Turn: {A-Diamonds}!

"Yes!" Frankenberger yelled as he clapped his hands together. Fourth street was his money card, and he was suddenly in a huge lead with one to come. Only a two-out jack could spoil the party.

The river was a blank, though, the {10-Diamonds}. Frankenberger has found his monster double, and he's certainly a force to be reckoned with now. Pink pants and all.

Bevand is left short with just 45,000 chips now.
