LisaY • Level 23: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Adam Laskey kicked things off with an open on the cutoff and Shyam Srinivasan was the only caller, defending his big blind.

Shyam Srinivasan raised to 27,000 and Heng Zhang defended his big blind.

The flop came {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{7-Clubs} and both players checked. Zhang bet 32,000 on the {5-Diamonds} turn and Srinivasan called. The river was the {k-Clubs}. Zhang checked and Srinivasan bet 85,000.

"You don't have any big chips behind, do you?" Zhang asked.

"No," replied Srinivasan, counting out the rest of his stack which totaled 163,000. Zhang moved all in and Srinivasan's chips damn-near beat him into the pot.
