Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em


Noah Vaillencourt just found himself near the top of the chip counts in the room, and we recently caught up with him during a hand to see how he was faring. With a {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs} in the middle of the felt we saw Vailencourt fire out 4,700 from the cut-off. His opponent on the button quickly raised and made it 13,400. Vailencourt seemed a little exasperated, but completed the call.

A {5-Spades} on the turn brought a silent check from Vailencourt. The button then moved all in for about 29,000. Vailencourt again seemed pretty jumbled and eventually made a disgruntled call.

Vailencourt: {K-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Button: {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Vailencourt was going to need a genuine one-outer if he wanted to claim this hand, the last king in the deck. Instead a {6-Spades} planted on the river and Vailencourt shipped over a chunk of his stack.

125,000 -75,000
