Karr Decimates Day 1b Chip Leader Lari Sihvo

Our very own EricRamsey (taught him all he knows) reported earlier how a slice of luck resulted in McLean Karr dodging an early crash. Since then he has increased his WSOPE ME net worth to 152,000 by decimating the stack of Lari Sihvo.

Karr raised to 5,000 in the cut-off and Lari Sihvo defended his big blind. The flop had more spades on it than a graveyard's annual convention - {10-Spades} {7-Spades} {3-Spades} - and Sihvo check-called a 6,700 Karr c-bet. The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Sihvo once again checked to Karr. The only part of Karr's body that moved was his hands as he moved 12,600 chips into the middle and Sihvo called. We had one more card to come and Sihvo had 54,000 when he checked. Karr made his third bet and it was 28,800. Sihvo did not like this bet, one bit, and went into the tank. Meanwhile Tony G sat down and after a period of five-minutes called the clock on Sihvo. The floor was called and Sihvo called before he could start counting. Karr neatly turned over {10-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} for top set and Sihvo folded and handed over the chips.
