Sion Keeps the Pressure On

Chad_Holloway • Level 3

No-Limit Hold'em

Elior "Crazy Elior" Sion opened for 1,300 from middle position and Brian Rast, who won this event back in 2011, called from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and it was heads-up action to the {7-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop. Sion led out for 1,800, Rast called, and the {9-Diamonds} appeared on the turn.

Sion bet again, this time 4,800, and Rast came along for the ride. When the {Q} completed the board on the river, Sion fired a third bullet for 13,600, and this time it did the trick as Rast quickly released his hand.
