$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 2: Blinds 50/100 66 Entries Nguyen & Arvay
The Tampa poker market is alive and well and the die hards are back after yesterday’s crazy day that featured two Main Event trophies and the first flight of this event.
Tom Nguyen (Tampa, FL), who picked up $8,480 as part of a 10-way chop in Event 1, is in the field. He arrives to the table to see Woody Pass (Tampa, FL) and Bob Arvay (Tampa, FL) tangle in a hand.
“Here’s a 1,700 donation,” says Arvay after Pass’ river bet. “Then fold and give me the money,” quips Pass who misses two draws and turns over Jack-high.
Arvay’s pocket Kings are best, but he was leery Pass hit trip 8s on the paired board. “I played with him enough to know I was crushed or it was a complete bluff.”
“I might as well go home if you can’t hit 17 outs,” says Pass who had an open ended straight and flush draws going to river.
This is by far the most interesting of the early tables and includes Bridget Freemon (Lakeland, FL) who appears to be the life of the party.
