There was some fierce action between xSt0n3rx and whitelime today on Full Tilt. The game was $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em.

Several pots were close to $100,000 in size, with the largest being a $120,000 win by xSt0n3rx holding POCKET FOURS against whitelime’s BIG SLICK. The fighters moved all their chips in pre-flop and all 4s held when whitlime failed to improve his hand.

One of the more interesting hands was in a pot of $83,196 when whitelime coldly called with a straight on the flop, hoping xSt0n3rx would continue betting.

xSt0n3rx took the bait and committed to the pot with a $10,000 bet on the turn. And when whitelime moved all-in, he called with an OPEN-ENDED STRAIGHT DRAW and low pair, not knowing he was DRAWING to only 3 OUTS for a SPLIT.
