Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

False Hope for Lindgren

[user101598] • Level 3: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Erick Lindgren raised to 20,000 in middle position, Phil Galfond three-bet to 57,000 in the hijack, and Lindgren called.

The dealer fanned {j-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, both players checked, and the turn was the {q-Clubs}. Lindgren led out for 80,000, Galfond raised to 190,000, and Lindgren called.

The river was the {a-Hearts}, both players quickly checked, and Lindgren showed {a-Spades}{8-Clubs} for a pair of aces. He was out-kicked by Galfond's {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, who was pushed the pot.

"You had a value bet there," Lindgren told Galfond after the hand.

"Yeahhhhhh," Galfond said, stacking his newfound chips. "I didn't know whether or not I was going to bet."

Phil Ivey snorted with laughter.

"That was a sick needle," Lindgren added. "You gave me false hope with that check."
