Mortensen and Prager Under Pressure
$365 NLHE Event #22 Day 2 5/121
Level 21: 5,000-10,000 / Ante 1,000
In a limped pot, Martin Ryan bet the flop of 9h 7h 6c for 18,000 out of the big blind and Ramon Baumbach called on the button. The 6d appeared on the turn and Ryan bet again to force a fold.
One hand later, George Griffith raised from the button and Gerald Mortensen defended the big blind. On the Ad Kh 6s flop, the action went check, check. After the 4s turn, Mortensen check-called a bet of 22,000 before the Kd river went check, check.
Griffith showed Ac 3c and that won the pot.
Mortensen (13 big blinds) and Stevan Prager (13 big blinds) remain the two shortest stacks, while Griffith (32 big blinds) and Martin Ryan (32 big blinds) are the medium stacks. Baumbach is the chip leader with 55 big blinds.
