Hilton on the Ropes

Dominik Nitsche

Jonathan Hilton, his red hoodie covering his head, raised to 125,000. Dominik Nitsche, looking out from underneath a gray hoodie, reraised to 350,000. Hilton called.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Nitsche led for 375,000, and after thinking about a half-minute Hilton called. The turn was the {7-Clubs}, pairing the board. This time Nitsche bet 625,000, acting quickly as before, and Hilton though about a full minute before gathering chips into a column and pushing them out to call.

The river was the {5-Clubs}, and Nitsche took just a few seconds before putting out a bet of 1.5 million. Hilton considered for three or four minutes, counting out his chips to see that if he called and lost, he'd be left with less than 1 million.

Finally Hilton did call. Nitsche showed his {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}, and Hilton grimaced slightly as he showed his {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. Nitsche had three-barreled, but it turned out his hand was best.
