Event #8: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout

Goehring's Trips Earn a Double

BrandonTemple • Level 42: 140,000-280,000, 40,000 ante

Ross "BlueTang" Gottlieb raised to 560,000 on the button, and Alan "GladiusIII" Goehring called in the big blind.

Goehring check-called a bet of 525,000 from Gottlieb on a {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop, and the {5-Hearts} fell on the turn. Goehring checked again, and Gottlieb jammed for Goehring's last 2,941,010. Goehring snapped him off.

Alan "GladiusIII" Goehring: {j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Ross "BlueTang" Gottlieb: {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Goehring flopped trips and held the lead, but Gottlieb had turned a ton of outs with a double gutter and the nut flush draw. The {q-Clubs} river bricked off, and Goehring doubled up.
