Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Craig Koch Climbing Back Into Contention

Former chip leader Craig Koch raised to 53,000 from under-the-gun and Kenneth Russell reraised to 135,000. After some thought, Koch announced that he was all-in for 513,000 and Russell called him down.


Koch: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Russell: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

The flop came {9-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}, pairing Russell's queen and giving him three additional outs. None of those outs arrived on the turn {3-Diamonds}, or river {8-Hearts}, and Koch scored the double-up with his pair of kings. He now sits with 1,066,000 while Russell fell to 300,000.
