Event #31: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Ilich Fades the Outs

• Taso 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Drazen Ilich raised to 8,500 from under the gun and Eddie Blumenthal raised it up to 18,500 from middle position. Ilich made the call when all other players let go of their hand, and the dealer laid out {4-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for a flop. Ilich announced all in and Blumenthal made the call.

Blumenthal: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Ilich: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Ilich was ahead, but there were plenty of cards in the deck that would let Blumenthal catch up. The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and the river {8-Diamonds} secured Ilich's double-up. Blumenthal has been left really short and is looking to double up soon.
