RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 1A): MILLER KEEPS STACKING
Level 7 (400/800/800)
Total Entrants: 59
The action folds to Doug Miller (pictured) in the cutoff and he raises to 1,800. The button and small blind fold and Stephen Johnson in the big blind three-bets to 4,900. Miller thinks for half a minute and then calls.
The dealer spreads a flop of A♦J♣9♠. Johnson checks and Miller checks behind. The turn brings the 7♥. Again, both players check.
The river is the K♣. Johnson immediately bets 5,000. Miller takes a look at Johnson's stack--Johnson has approximately 18,000 behind--and raises to 11,000 straight. Johnson, clearly disgusted, tosses in chips to call.
Doug Miller - Q♣T♣
Stephen Johnson - K♥K♠
Johnson rivered a set of kings but it's second-best to Miller's broadway straight.
Doug Miller - 139,800
Stephen Johnson - 11,800
