Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Mortensen Struggling


Today doesn't seem to be Carlos Mortensen's day. The 2001 World Series of Poker Main Event champion is down to just 800 chips, and it seemed as though those were going into to the pot just a couple of minutes ago. But they did not.

Shawn Keller raised from the button and Mortesen opted to three-bet from the small blind after which the big blind quickly folded. Keller called and the flop came down {7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Mortesen bet 200. Keller asked how much Mortesen had behind, a rare question in Limit Hold'em, and he raised. Mortesen called and check-folded on the turn when the {5-Clubs} showed up.

Mortesen is down to just a few bets and will need to find a double up quickly.
