Event 3: Brenda Lane Gets Some Birthday Luck

$210 No Limit Hold’em Seniors

Level 16: 2,000/4,000/500


Brenda Lane (pictured) raised on the button to 8,000 before the player in the big blind moved all in. Lane, who had another 9,800 behind, reluctantly called off her stack and was in terrible shape.

Lane showed 8d5d and was in serious trouble against the big blind’s QdQs. The board ran out 6c3h2d5c8h and Lane went runner-runner two pair to scoop the pot.

“That was my birthday suckout,” said Lane as she was stacking cihps.

Lane increases her stack to 38,000 while her opponent was left with just 4,000.
