Staats Riding the Roller Coaster
$365 Monster Stack Event #13 Day 2 11/136
Level 19: 4,000-8,000 / Ante 1,000
Christopher Staats defended against the raise to 20,000 by Daniel Azancot and the latter then bet the 8c 7d 5d flop for 31,000 in the cutoff. Staats called on the button and Jose Delgado folded in the big blind. The 2s turn was checked through and the 9d on the river saw a check of Azancot and a bet worth 40,000 by Staats.
Azancot folded and the pot was shipped to the American. Staats then lost a pot against Ingrid Etienne and had to give up another to fall back to around 165,000.
