Posted by Steven, September 20, 2012


VIP MonthlyThe blinds were 150,000/300,000 and there was an ante of 43,000 on the final hand of the Monthly VIP $5,000 freeroll tournament. Canadian player "Vanillabean1" and Russian player "ICada99" were evenly stacked in chips. The Canadian in small blind position found himself with K 4. He raised and the Russian player, holding 3♠ Acalled. The flop was dealt.

K♣ Q 3. Both players were paired up, but the Canadian had the higher pair. After the Russian checked, "Vanillabean1" made a pot-size bet. "ICada99" called. The turn was dealt and it was 7♠.

Again the Russian checked. "Vanillabean1" pushed all his chips into the pot with his pair of kings. "ICada99" called. He was behind and what he needed on the river was either an ace or a three.

The river was dealt and it was the 5.

"Vanillabean1" was the winner of the freeroll, winning an $860 prize. "ICada99" had to settle for $625 in second place.
