Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Staszko Starts Well

Shamus • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante

Martin Staszko has gotten off to a quick start here at the secondary feature table, taking the first two hands following the redraw.

On the first one, Staszko opened with a raise to 425,000 from the button and got a caller in Khoa Nguyen from the big blind. The flop came {7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn brought the {8-Hearts} and a couple more checks.

The river was the {Q-Clubs}. Nguyen checked, and Staszko didn't waste too much time before betting a hefty 1.08 million. Nguyen sat in thought, moving his chips around as he considered what to do. Finally Nguyen called.

Staszko showed {Q-}{6-} for queens and nines, and Nguyen mucked, dropping to about 11.5 million.

Staszko opened with a raise to 425,000 from the cutoff on the next hand as well, and claimed the blinds and antes. He's up to about 6.15 million.
