Siegel Runs Good

Event 14: $1,500 + $150 No-Limit Hold'em

Pool Man out of Shallow Water

Eric "Pools" Siegel (Melville, NY) has the nickname because of his work in the pool industry, and fortunately for him the river card is a life saver while he's swimming in the deep end.

From UTG Siegel raises with 10 9 and gets a caller from the cut off. The flop is 10 high with one diamond, Seigel leads out for 3,800 and the opponent calls.

The turn is the 5 and Siegel sends in his last 15k, UTG calls and shows Q Q for an over pair.

Siegel's flush draw gets there with the 8 on the river and Siegel quips, "the guy's now at the B Bar wearing his swimmies," as he takes his stack to 40k.
