Hinrichsen vs. "The Croc"

Andrew Hinrichsen opened for 4,000 under the gun and cleared the field all the way around to Billy "The Croc" Argyros in the big blind. The latter opted to defend and checked in the dark. When the flop fell {5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, Hinrichsen bet 3,500, Argyros called, and the {J-Diamonds} appeared on the turn.

It went check-check, as it did on the {Q-Spades} river, and Hinrichsen revealed {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}. Argyros simply mucked as the two essentially pulled even in the chip counts.
