Main Event



Lawrie Inman opened with a raise to 1,300 from middle position and then action moved to Team PokerStars Pro Sebastian Ruthenberg in the hijack seat. He three-bet to 3,100. A couple of spots over, Nick Binger came in on the action with a four-bet to 7,525. Play folded back to Inman and he tanked for a bit before finally mucking his hand. Ruthenberg stuck around, though, making the call to see the flop.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Ruthenberg checked. Binger stayed aggressive and fired a bet of 9,125. Ruthenberg thought things over and then called, making this quite the pot at hand.

The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and Ruthenberg checked again. Binger didn't slow down. He upped his wager and fired in 21,025. Ruthenberg went into the tank deeply. He thought about it for a couple of minutes before giving it up and allowing Binger to scoop the pot.
