Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Ruthenberg Makes the Right Call

Shamus • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Sebastian Ruthenberg

Even McNiff opened for 42,000 from the button, and Sebastian Ruthenberg called from the big blind. The flop came {J-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Rutheberg led with a bet of 50,000, and McNiff called. The turn was the {2-Hearts} and Ruthenberg bet again, this time 86,000. McNiff called once more.

The river brought the {K-Hearts} and a check from Ruthenberg. McNiff paused, then pushed out a bet of 192,000. Ruthenberg went deep into the tank, thinking for at least a couple of minutes.

Finally he set out a stack of calling chips, and tabled his {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}. He'd made the correct decision, as McNiff mucked.

Ruthenberg sits with 2.869 million now, while McNiff slips to 1.197 million.
