$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Rubie Back to a Milli

Action folded to Brendon Rubie in the cutoff and he opened for 25,000, which Mike Belenky called from the small blind. Andrew Capelin decided to exercise his option in the big blind with a three-bet to 80,000, which only Rubie called.

Capelin proceeded to bet 100K on the {5-Spades}{9-Clubs}{K-Spades} flop, Rubie called, and then the duo checked down the {9-Diamonds} turn and {J-Spades} river. Capelin rolled over {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a rivered straight, which was good enough to win the pot.
