Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Trying to Make a Buchman

Shamus • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

A player under the gun limped, then Eric Buchman, sitting to his left, raised to 800. It folded back to the big blind who called, and the limper called as well.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and it quickly checked to Buchman. The player in the big blind rechecked her cards as the fourth-place finisher in the 2009 WSOP Main Event bet 1,200. She called, as did the player in between her and Buchman.

The turn then brought the {A-Hearts}, pairing the board. It checked to Buchman again, and he bet 2,500 this time. The big blind paused about 20 seconds, stealing a glance at Buchman as she did, then let her hand go. Buchman's other opponent folded as well.

Buchman has about 35,000.
