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

Preston Pushing Forward

• Taso 2: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Christopher Vitch opened up the action by flicking out a raise. Preston Derden was the only player who wanted to rumble, throwing in a call from the big blind.

The {7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop would see Derden check-call a bet from Vitch as a {4-Hearts} turn card was flipped onto the felt. Both players checked here and then did the same when a {j-Diamonds} hit the river.

When Derden tabled his {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}, the ace high was enough to see Vitch's cards into the muck and a pot sent the way of Derden.
