Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Straight for Steinberg

Shamus • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

There was about 10,000 in the middle and the board read {2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} when Lance Steinberg bet 7,500 from middle position. His lone opponent in the cutoff seat called the bet.

The river brought the {8-Hearts} and a quick bet of 11,000 from Steinberg. His opponent took about a half-minute this time, then called. Steinberg quickly flipped over his hand -- {5-Spades}{3-Spades} for a six-high straight -- and his opponent nodded disappointingly before showng his {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}.

Steinberg is up to 238,000 now.
