ajlamers • Level 38: 500,000-1,000,000, 1,000,000 ante

Ben Sarnoff raised to 2,000,000 from cutoff and Eric Smidinger called from the big blind. The flop came {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and both players checked to the {10-Clubs} on the turn.

Two more checks and the {9-Clubs} peeled off on the river. Smidinger checked for the third time and Sarnoff finally tossed in a bet of 3,000,000 which got Smidinger to fold.

On the next hand, Sarnoff opened to 2,000,000 from under the gun and was called by Smidinger and Kathy Liebert in the blinds. The flop fell {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{3-Spades} and the action checked to Sarnoff who continued with a bet of 3,000,000. Smidinger quickly folded while Liebert commented about how much the bet was before flashing the {k-Diamonds} to the rail and the table.
