Jewell Wins With a House
Niveau 23 : 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
The action was opened with a raise to 34,000 from middle position and both Kurt Jewell, in the small blind, and the big blind player called. On the flop, the action checked back to the initial raiser who bet 52,000. Jewell made the call and the big blind folded.
Both players checked on the turn before Jewell checked once more on the river. His opponent gave himself 30 seconds to think before he opted to check behind. Jewell showed pocket fours for a full house and his opponent mucked.
Jewell, who has $1,509,147 in recorded live cashes, has now crossed the million-chip mark for the first time.
