Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Like a Rock

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

After a player opened and Daniel Engels three-bet, Rock Cloutier four-bet jammed from late position. The initial raiser folded and Engels made a quick call.

Cloutier: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Engels: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Cloutier opted to go with his pocket pair, but he was in trouble as Engels held a bigger one. The {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop was disaster for Cloutier as a six would no longer win it for him. He needed either running sixes, a seven with a big card, or some other miracle. The odds were strongly against him, but the {A-Spades} turn gave him some hope as another ace or the case seven would chop the pot.

Unfortunately for him, it wasn't in the cards as the {J-Clubs} blanked on the river.
