Level 7 (400/800/800)
Total Entrants: 111
We missed the early action and arrive at Table 11 with four players involved in a hand with a flop already out, reading J♦9♥8♦. The action checks to Kristi Catalani, who bets 3,000. Everyone calls, including Rodney Sermons (pictured).
The turn brings the 4♦, bringing in the possible flush, and the second player to act moves all in for around 20,000. Catalani folds and the action is back on Sermons. After a good minute in the tank, Sermons calls and the fourth player folds.
Sermons - 8♠4♥
Opponent - A♦Q♣
Sermons must fade all the diamonds and all the tens to knock out his opponent, which is what happens when the 6♠ hits the river.
Rodney Sermons - 88,000
Kristi Catalani - 78,600
