Thompson Tops Jordan
Thompson Slows Down Jordan

Kyron Jordan (Sebring, FL) says, “make sure you write he slow rolled me, with lots of ‘ohs’,” after losing 40k in a pot against Ben Thompson (Lakeland, FL).

“Don’t worry,” laughs Thompson, “the rest of it’s coming here.”

Jordan and Thompson mix it up on a board of A-Q-4-9-Q with Jordan calling a 10k river bet. Jordan flips over KQ for trip Queens and has to wait on Thompson.

“He turned it over so fast I had to make sure I won,” says Thompson who wins the hand with AQ for a full house and says the slow reaction was unintentional.

A third player chimes in, “the only that beat you was pocket Aces,” as the entire table jokes about the hand.

Jordan drops from 100k down to 60k, while Thompson, a Seminole Hard Rock Tampa regular is up to 95k.
