Levi Putting the Hurta On


Just at the tail end of the last level, we lost Miroslav Hurta.

The pot began with Nicolas Levi opening to 1,000 from the cutoff seat, and Hurta thee-bet to 3,100 in the small blind. Levi called, and they took a {J-Spades} {4-Hearts} {J-Clubs} flop heads up. Hurta continued out with another 3,500 which Levi called, and the turn brought the {K-Diamonds}. Now Hurta froze, long enough that Levi asked to make sure he knew the action was on him. He did, and he eventually checked, and Levi checked it right back.

The river came the {2-Clubs}, and now Hurta went ahead and shoved in for more than 20,000. Levi made the call, and Hurta tabled {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds} for aces up. It was no good. Levi tabled his {10-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}, and his trip jacks send Hurta off to the rail.
