Gruissem Makes a Hero Call

[user101598] • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Philipp Gruissem

After three-betting Matt Waxman preflop, Philipp Gruissem tossed out a bet of 21,000 on a flop of {8-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. Waxman check-raised all in, wagering effectively 120,000 or so, and Gruissem tanked for the better part of five minutes before calling.

Waxman ripped over {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} for top two pair, and Gruissem turned over {10-Hearts}{8-Spades} for just bottom pair.

The {5-Clubs} on the turn was a brick, and the {10-Diamonds} on the river gave Gruissem a meaningless two pair.

"Payout!" the dealer shouted, not knowing that they weren't in the money yet.

The floor quickly corrected her, and there were some giggles at the table as Gruissem collected his things and paid his masseuse. The German hit the rail short of the money, while Waxman is up over 400,000 chips.

John Racener and David Williams also exited at neighboring tables:

John RacenerBusted 10k 6max 6 from the money. This is now the 5th event I have missed the money by 15 people or less #blah
