Hand #44: Vanessa Rousso Extends Her Chip Lead
Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante
Hand #44 - Andrew Lichtenberger raises to 100,000 from early position, Racener calls from middle position, and Vanessa Rousso reraises to 420,000 out of the small blind. Lichtenberger folds and Racener calls.
Both players check the K72 flop. The turn is the K and Rousso checks again. Racener bets 595,000 and Rousso calls. The river is the J and Rousso bets 1 million.
Racener starts to shake his head in disbelief. "You were gonna pay me off too. No queen, no jack on the river," Racener tells her. He continues to shake his head as he thinks.
"I know you have two jacks....it's just so brutal. I was supposed to bet the million and you were going to call." After more than a couple of minutes in the tank, Racener folds and Rousso rakes in the big pot.
Vanessa Rousso - 5,240,000 (131 bbs)
John Racener - 2,000,000 (50 bbs)
