Event #47: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Busse Cripples Crowe


After a couple more hands, Owen Crowe and Shawn Busse were nearly dead even when the following hand took place.

Busse began the hand with a raise to 200,000 from the button, and Crowe made the call. The flop came {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Crowe led with a bet of 275,000. Busse responded with a raise to 725,000. Then Crowe reraised again for 1.54 million more. Busse said he was all in.

"I guess you got aces," said Crowe. "So I call."

Busse {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}
Crowe {J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

The turn was the {K-Spades} and the river the {4-Diamonds}, and Busse's large crowd of supporters let out a huge roar. After some time spent counting down the stacks, it was determined that Crowe did have Busse covered by just a bit, so we aren't quite done yet.
