Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout

Ramdin Gets the Double

Victor Ramdin has spent much of the early part of the day as the shortest stack at the table and as such it is not surprising that he was the first player to find himself all in. The hand in question started when Ramdin opened up the pot with a raise preflop. Chris Vtich three-bet from the cutoff and only Ramdin would rumble.

The {7-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} flop would see Ramdin check-call a bet from Vitch and the {9-Spades} would hit the river. Ramdin only had a few big bets at this point and would check-raise on the turn. Vitch then made it a third bet and Ramdin flicked in the last of his chips.

Ramdin: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Vitch: {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

Vitch needed a ten to split the pot, but the {6-Spades} on the river was good enough to send Ramdin the double-up and leave Vitch as the short stack.
