Event 5: Lindo Hits a Gutshot

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 9: 400/800/100


There was a raise in early position to 2,000. Oscar Lindo (pictured) called from the small blind and the big blind called as well.

Three players took a flop of Ah8h6c and it was checked around. The turn was the 8d and Lindo leads out for 2,000 and is called only by the big blind.

The river is the 7c and Lindo leads out for 7,000. The big blind sips his coffee while contemplating his decision. After almost two minutes in the tank, the big blind tosses in 7,000 and looks frustrated when Lindo tables Tc9c, good for a straight.

The big blind mucks his hand and Lindo is up to 84,000 in chips.
