Covyn On the Rise

ajlamers • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

The action folded to Vojtech Ruzicka in the small blind and he shipped all in for his last 126,000. Danny Covyn was in the big blind and gave it some thought before making the call.

Ruzicka tabled {k-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Covyn was dominating with {a-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. The flop of {a-Spades}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts} left Covyn in the lead and the {a-Diamonds} on the turn ended any chances of Ruzicka coming from behind.

Just a couple of hands later, Matous Houzvicek raised to 22,000 in the hijack and Covyn called from the cutoff. The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Houzvicek led out for 34,000. Covyn raised to 75,000 and Houzvicek called to see the {4-Spades} on the turn.

Houzvicek checked this time and Covyn pushed all in for 253,000. Houzvicek thought briefly but quickly decided to let go of his hand.
