Event 9: It’s Raining All In Buttons

$175 + $25 + $20 NLH Seniors (Re-Entry)

Blinds 200/400 Ante 50

At one of the tables in the Seniors Event, there were three all in buttons sitting in front of players with action still pending on the original raiser who had opened for 1.2K. Deciding not to test his luck against three people that were willing to sacrifice their tournament life, he folded. All in player #1 had AsKh. All in player #2 had AhQh. This was good news for the shortest stack of the three, the woman in seat 6 who had stated “I hope you all have big cards” before the hands were revealed. She had pocket 8’s and the medium pair would hold up when the board ran out Jc4h2d5cJs. “Yaaayyyyy!!!” said our winner as she did a small dance in her seat to celebrate her triple up.

At another table, there was a raise from the gentleman in the 2 seat. He was re-raised by a woman in the 8 seat who had him covered. He four bet and she made the call. The flop came Q-J-4 and the 2 seat instantly moved all in. He was instantly called and the woman turned over pocket Queens for flopped top set. Seat 2 tossed his cards in disgust towards the center of the table before realizing he still had hope, even if it was slim. He grabbed the cards and turned over pocket Kings. No miracle would arrive though and he could only mutter under his breath “nice hand” before walking away.

There are 76 players remaining. Still a lot of poker to be played tonight.
