Event 5: Sponaugle Plays it Safe

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 10: 500/1,000/100


John Pappas checked and Ryan Sponaugle (pictured) bet 7,000 on the turn with the board reading Th8c7sQs. Pappas called and the 4h fell on the river.

Pappas checked again and Sponaugle hesitated for a moment.

“I normally bet here, but for some reason I think you have a set,” said Sponaugle as he tabled QcTh, good for top two pair.

Pappas smiled and showed KsJc, good for a missed straight draw and Sponaugle took the pot.
