Event #21: $1,500 Monster Stack No-Limit Hold'em

Hendricks Flats Ace-King in the Big Blind, Gets Paid

• Nivo 1: 100-200, 200 ante

A player in early position opened to 600 and was called by both the hijack and Mike Hendricks in the big blind.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} and it checked around.

The {k-Spades} brought the action as the early-position player bet 1,000 and was called by the hijack before Hendricks popped it up to 3,000. Only the hijack called.

The river brought the {9-Hearts} and Hendricks fired for 5,000. Looking seemingly defeated, the hijack tossed in a red chip only to find that his {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} was beaten by Hendricks' {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}.

Papelian Gets Big Value on River Straight

• Nivo 1: 100-200, 200 ante

With 6,000 already in the pot on a {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs} board, the under-the-gun player bet 3,000. Sevak Papelian, in the big blind, raised to 8,000 and was snap-called by his opponent's {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}.

Fortunately, Papelian had {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} for the stone-cold nut straight and he was able to scoop a big early pot.
