Gerber Gets One

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Dylan Hortin raised it up to 100,000 from the button and found a caller in Samuel Gerber who was residing on the big blind.

The flop came {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Gerber check-called a bet of 100,000 from Hortin. The {k-Diamonds} on the turn saw a repeat of action with Gerber again check-calling a bet of 200,000.

The {8-Diamonds} on the river brought to checks from the players and Gerber flipped over {j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for jacks and threes. Hortin mucked his cards and Gerber was awarded the pot.

Action folded around to Matt Stout on the button, who went all in for his last 855,000. Samuel Gerber folded from the small, however, Joseph Marzicola peaked at his cards, shrugged and announced a call for the rest of his chips.

Stout: {K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Marzicola: {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

Marzicola had an ever-so-slight lead going into the flop, however the board ran out {K-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, leaving Stout with a pair of kings for the win.

Stout is up to 1,700,000 following the elimination.
