Newhouse and Johnson Battle to a Draw

• Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Iaron Lightbourne raised to 175,000 from middle position and Mark Newhouse called from the hijack. Chris Johnson then called from the cutoff, Brian Roberts did the same from the button, and four players saw a flop of {5-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. Lightbourne checked, Newhouse bet 400,000, and Johnson made the call. Roberts folded, as did Lightbourne, and it was heads-up action to the {2-Diamonds} turn.

Newhouse checked, Johnson bet 700,000, and Newhouse called to see the {Q-Hearts} on the river. Both players checked and Newhouse tabled {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Johnson then tabled {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for the same hand and the two chopped the pot.
