Championship Day 1C: It’s Good to Be Carl Carodenuto

$1,650 Winter Poker Open Championship
Level 10: 500/1,000/100 Ante

Before he was a blip on the chip lead’s radar, Carl Carodenuto picked up KsKd and spiked a king on the flop against an opponent’s AdAh. Needless to say, the money was all in preflop and the hand sent his opponent to the rail.

Now, many levels later, Carodenuto has busted those same kings that helped propel him to the lead. The hand saw Carodenuto holding AsTh against the KsKc. The blow came quick as the flop fell Ah8c4h pairing Carodenuto’s ace. The turn 8s and river 7d didn’t change a thing and Carodenuto busted an opponent, raked the pot and crossed the 300,000 mark.
