2013 World Series of Poker

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

Cunningham Makes the Call

[user38338] • Nivå 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Allen Cunningham

Playing from late position, Allen Cunningham raised and got a caller in the big blind and the pair saw a flop come {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}. The big blind checked, then called Cunningham's continuation bet, and both watched the turn bring the {A-Diamonds}. Cunningham's opponent checked again, the 2006 WSOP Main Event fourth-place finisher bet 7,000, and the big blind called once more.

The river then brought the {8-Spades} and another check from Cunningham's opponent. This time Cunningham bet 14,000, and his opponent relatively quickly check-raised to 54,000.

That sent Cunningham deep into the tank, as to call would mean committing a significant percentage of his remaining stack. After five full minutes, Cunningham found a call, and when his opponent asked him what he had, he replied "I have an ace" while tabling {A-Hearts}{5-Spades}. The big blind also had one — with {A-Spades}{4-Clubs} — and they split the pot.
