Event #53: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack

Blackwell Scores the Knockout

• Niveau 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

A player went all in under the gun for his last 10,000 and got three callers, including the player to his direct left, Norm MacDonald in the cutoff, and Patrick Blackwell in the small blind.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, and the action checked to the early position player, who bet 10,000. MacDonald asked for a count on that player's chips, tanked for a few seconds and made a visibly frustrated fold. Blackwell called, and the turn came the {9-Clubs}.

The action checked through on the final two streets, including the river {7-Spades}. Blackwell showed down {k-Spades}{q-Spades} to take down the pot and send the original under-the-gun raiser to the rail.

Meanwhile, Erik Seidel and Chris Grigorian have made their way into the field as late registration continues. The current count of active players is at 3,233.
