Event 7: In The Money

$300 + $30 + $20 NLH 6-Max (Re-Entry)

Blinds 1.2K/2.4K Ante 400

Norbert Kara opened the action to 7K and it was folded to Lance Garcia in the big blind. “How much you playing?” Garcia asked Kara. Norbert lifted his hands to show his stack to Lance and responded “about 40”. Garcia made the call while saying to no one in particular… “let’s play some defense.”

The flop came Ad-8s-5s and Garcia checked. Kara made a bet of 11K and Garcia instantly grabbed a stack of 5K chips and threw them carelessly into the middle. “Did you mean to do that,” asked another player at the table. Lance flashed a grin. Norbert looked over at the other table, eyed his remaining chips, and said “ok, let’s bubble” and made the call while turning over Ah-Ts. “You have a blocker?” asked Lance as he turned over Qs-9s for a flush draw. The turn was the 6s giving Garcia the flush and meaning the end of the day for Norbert as he is our bubble boy. Kara’s had an excellent couple months at Seminole Hard Rock tournaments including a win at the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open” in Hollywood last month. He came up just short this month but we’re sure he’ll be making another deep run soon.
