Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Cohen With a Flop You Dream About

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

On Day 1C, Samantha Cohen was sitting with Yevgeniy Timoshenko, David Diaz and Daniel Cates. She joked that she was going to fold her way to Day 2 and hope to get a better table draw. She did just that, finishing Day 1 with barely over the starting stack and has been running up her stack all day.

From the hijack, Samantha Cohen raised to 2,200 and received calls from the players in the cutoff, the button and the big blind.

The flop was {3-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} and all four players checked to see the {8-Diamonds} hit the turn. The player first to act checked to Cohen who bet 3,400. The player directly to her left called while the other two folded.

The river was the {3-Spades} and Cohen bet 7,000. Her opponent thought for a little while before slowly putting in the chips. Cohen tabled {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for the nut flush and was shipped the pot to get her to 109,000.
