RG NKC Main Event (Day 1B): Keeping up the pressure

Level 8 (500/1000/100)
Day 1B entries: 140

On the last hand before break, Ketsana Phetsomphou opens from the cutoff for 3,000. Derrick Contreras in the small blind calls, as does James Poole in the big blind.

The dealer spreads a flop of J♦8♦8♥. The blinds check and Phetsomphou continues for 5,000. Contreras folds and Poole calls.

The turn brings the Q♥. Again the big blind checks and Phetsomphou takes a moment to size up her opponent's stack, then bets 10,000.  Poole has around 23,000 behind, and thinks it over before letting it go.

Ketsana Phetsomphou - 72,600
