Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Two Hands From Table 14

We joined the action on a flop of {J-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} in what looked a like a three-bet pot. Byron Kaverman was seated in the small blind and he made a bet of 1,850 and Harrison Gimbel called on the button. The turn card was the {8-Spades} and then for a few minutes the table went dead. Kaverman and Gimbel both staring at the board for so long the dealer nearly fell asleep. Eventually Kaverman check-folded to a 3,200 Gimbel bet.

Then Steve Gross raised to 200 in the cutoff and the young Frenchman Tristan Clemencon three-bet to 550 from the small blind. Gross made the call and the pair were heads-up to the flop.

The dealer did his job and gave the two players a flop of {K-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {4-Clubs} and Gross called a 600 Clemencon c-bet. That was the end of the action as the {9-Hearts} and {9-Spades} were both checked through and the pot was pushed to Clemencon when he tabled {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}.
