Championship Day 1A: Tuthill Running Good

$1,500 + $100 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event (Re-Entry)

Blinds 400/800 Ante 100

Earlier we posted about David Tuthill’s displeasure with the upcoming one hour dinner break. Good news for David – it’s been reduced to a regular 15 minute break. In addition to that bit of run good, Tuthill just added over 30K to his stack. With the board reading Jh9s6s7h Tuthill made a bet of 5.2K that was called by his opponent. The river was the Kc and his opponent instantly moved all in. This move seemed to perplex David and he took a moment to study his foe. “I tell you what, I’ll show you” said the all in player. Tuthill took a few more moments before grabbing the chips to make the call and placing them in front of him. His opponent tabled 7c5d for fourth pair… a complete bluff. Tuthill, of course, had him beat easily with KhJs. “Oh wow, why didn’t you call quicker,” said the now eliminated bluffer. “You fold if that river isn’t a king.” Tuthill nodded as he quietly stacked chips.

27 players remain with 5 minutes left before the break.
