Event 9: Got Lucky

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

Blinds 100/200 Ante 25

There were three limpers in the hand and the player in the small blind decided to raise the price to see the flop to 1,100, leaving himself with 3,075. Two of the limpers called and the small blind grabbed his remaining chips and was holding them out in front of his cards, arm extended, obviously prepared to place them all into the middle. The flop came Q-T-5 and he set the chips down in front of him. The dealer tossed the All In button in front of him and the first caller of the pre-flop raise announced that he was all in as well. The third player in the hand quickly folded.

The small blind turned over pocket Queens for flopped top set. “Awwwww, you gotta be kidding me,” said the other player as he turned over pocket 5’s for flopped bottom set. No one outer and the small blind more than doubled up. “Nice hand sir,” said the unfortunate player with bottom set. “Got lucky,” his opponent responded with a slight grin on his face.

There are 125 players registered with about 10 minutes left in Level 4. Registration will close shortly. Once we have final numbers and prize pool/payout information we will post them here.

Event 8: 6th Place, Mike Taylor – $888

$175 + $25 + $20 NLH Deep Stack TURBO (Re-Entry)

Blinds: 20k/40k/5k ante

Rob Manjura moved all in first to act and was called by Mike Taylor. Manjura had KhJc and would need some help as Taylor held pocket Queens. The flop and turn kept Taylor in the lead but the King on the river would have Taylor flinging his sunglasses down on the ground and sending him to the rail in 6th place.
