Event #21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Kirk Ships and Holds

mnuwwarah • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Jeff Gross raised to 8,000 on the button and watched Tripp Kirk shove for 57,500 in the big blind. Gross went into the tank.

"Sorry, guys. Thirty seconds, I promise," he said after some thought. About a minute later, he stacked up two towers of T1,000 chips. "I'm going to... call."

Kirk: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Gross: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

"That's not a good flop," Gross said, as the dealer fanned {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds} on the felt.

The {2-Hearts} turn and {8-Hearts} river were no better, and Gross was forced to double his opponent up.
