Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Shoving Time on Table #7

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Go big or go home is likely to be the dominant theme of this level, at least until the players reach the bubble when action is highly likely to slow down dramatically.

Tom Harper shoved under the gun and it got to small blind Willy Kerol who had a smaller stack an announced all in to put his tournament life on the line.

Harper had the pair {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} and it was big slick {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} for Kerol. The cards ran out {6-Hearts}{q-Spades}{4-Hearts}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and Kerol let out a relieved, “Yes.” as his straight came on the river to double him up.

At the same table Cory Rodvik open shoved from middle position and found a caller who tabled {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. Rodvik needed help as he showed {k-Spades}{q-Spades} and with a final board of {5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{q-Clubs}{a-Clubs} the dealer duly delivered that help.
