Championship 1B: Leif Falls on First Bullet

$1,500 + $100 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event (Re-Entry)
Level 3: Blinds 100/200/25 ante

“Very loose table,” says Leif Oskarsson (Clearwater) moments after going out, “I was pretty tight and going to have to loosen up on the next one.”

Oskarsson says he lost a series of pots including flush over flush to end up short before busting. The “5 days a week” regular is taking advantage of re-entry and jumping back in the tournament.

Oskarsson’s final hand, dealt by Rudy, who is a Hard Rock original, 20 years and counting, is won by Mike Ferneman (Davenport).

Ferneman flops a pair of aces with A-Q against Oskarsson’s pair of Kings (K-8) when the chips go in.

In the $555 opening event Ferneman made the money and is off to a good start in the Championship as the third level winds down.
