Nitsche Grinding Away

Posted 2012-07-08 GMT-6 by

Dominik Nitsche has been slowly, but surely, grinding away at Jonathan Hilton's stack.

In a recent hand, Hilton completed from the button and Nitsche checked his option.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and Nitsche led out for 65,000. Hilton called.

The turn brought the {A-Spades}. This time, Nitsche led out for 165,000 and Hilton again called.

The {3-Hearts} completed the board and both players checked. Nitsche flipped over {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for a pair of tens and it was good as Hilton mucked.

Hilton is down to his last 1.9 million.
