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

Zaucha Takes One from Mortensen

• Nivå 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Carlos Mortensen raised to 5,400 from the cutoff, and action folded around to Brandan Zaucha in the big blind. Zaucha thought for a minute, and as he did so, Mortensen put on his sunglasses. Zaucha chuckled and asked the 2001 Main Event Champion, "So now it's serious? Now I call," and he pushed chips forward. The flop came {2-Spades}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}, and Zaucha checked. Mortensen continued for 6,600, and Zaucha called. Both players checked the {9-Hearts} on the turn, and then the {3-Spades} came on the river. Both players checked again, and Zaucha turned over {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for second-pair on the flop. Mortensen slid his cards to the dealer, and Zaucha took the pot.

After the hand, Zaucha was up to 134,000, while still has 325,000.

Chips Count
Carlos Mortensen es 325,000 -45,000
Brandan Zaucha US 134,000 32,800
