Ruthenberg Raising, Crawford Calling

Shamus • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Claudia Crawford

Sebastian Ruthenberg opened for 62,000 from late position, and only Claudia Crawford called from the small blind. The flop came {A-Hearts}{7-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Crawford checked, Ruthenberg bet 70,000, and Crawford called. The turn was the {5-Clubs}. Crawford checked, and Ruthenberg checked behind.

The river brought the {6-Clubs}. Crawford checked again, and this time Ruthenberg fired 120,000. Crawford tanked for some time, then finally let her hand go.

Shortly after that one came another hand that again began with a Ruthenberg raise -- to 63,000 this time -- and a Crawford call from the cutoff. The flop came {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. Ruthenberg bet 61,000 and Crawford called. The turn was the {9-Spades}, and as before, both players checked.

The river brought the {6-Diamonds} and a check from Ruthenberg. Crawford bet 140,000 this time, and Ruthenberg folded.

After that bit of back and forth, Ruthenberg has 2.97 million and Crawford 2.368 million.
