Blondeau Rivered Out


First in from the button, Byron Kaverman opened to 32,000 — the minimum — and Rudy Blondeau three-bet shoved for his last 245,000 from the small blind. When it came back around to Kaverman, he spent a few minutes soaking in the tank before plunking a stack of blue chips across the imaginary betting line. Blondeau was at risk, but he was in a good spot to double.

Kaverman: {J-Diamonds} {10-Spades}
Blondeau: {A-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}

The {K-Hearts} {9-Spades} {2-Clubs} flop was a decent miss for Kaverman as he picked up another four outs with the gutshot straight draw. The turn {6-Hearts} was a blank, and Blondeau was one card from the double. He just needed to fade the jacks and queens left in the deck, but that proved to be too tall a task. The {Q-Hearts} dropped on the river, and the straight locks up the knockout for Kaverman.

He's moved into the top five now with about 1.65 million chips.
