Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

They Aren't Buying It

A player raised from early position to 1,700 and Jake Balsiger reraised to 4,500 from the button. The other player checked to Balsinger on the {6-Spades}{10-Spades}{7-Spades} flop. The spades didn't scare Balsiger though, as he bet 3,300. His opponent called the bet and the {6-Diamonds} turn was dealt. Both players checked and then came the {k-Clubs} river. The other player checked and Balsiger bet 84,000. His opponent called. Balsiger tabled without hesitation the {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} while his opponent took the pot with {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}.

The very next hand, action folded to Balsiger in the cutoff and he raised to 2,000. The player on the button made it 57,500 to go and after the blinds folded, Balsiger folded as well.

At the start of the previous hand, Balsinger was up to near 50,000 and he has lost some the last few hand.s
