Event #26: $1,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em

Easy Come, Easy Go

MikePatrick • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

With blinds now at 6,000 and 12,000, pots are getting huge and a once huge stack can quickly go south.

Case in point, Ali Darroudi, who not long ago was challenging for the chip lead is now among the shorter stacks in the room after losing a pot to Frankie Muzzio.

On a {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop, Darroudi check-raised Muzzio's 32,000 chip bet to 85,000, which Muzzio called.

Darroudi continued the pressure on the {3-Clubs} turn with a bet of 50,000 that Muzzio again called.

Darroudi fired once more on the river {8-Clubs} for 66,000, which represented about a quarter of Muzzio's remaining stack.

Muzzio called, and Darroudi reluctantly showed {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, which was second-best to Muzzio's {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}.

Muzzio is now the player well over 500,000 while Darroudi will have to quickly rebuild if he is to survive to day 2.
