Two Ducks Beat Two Big Chicks

Event 6: $250 + $30 No Limit Hold'em

Playing 400/800 with 75 antes.

After 3 players limped, the big blind raised to 5k. One player called the raise, then the lady at the table moved all in for 2,575 on top. After verifying that the original raiser cannot re-raise, Joseph Si (Queens, NY) called and both other players came along for the ride.

Joseph Si

The flop came K 6 2 -- all hearts -- and it was checked to Joseph, who announced he was all-in. The other two players with chips quickly mucked. The all-in player said she was drawing dead and mucked her hand. Joseph collected the pot and stacked up about 63k in chips -- might be good for the chip lead at this point.

Adam Sanders

Another three-way pre-flop all-in. Two players both held AQ ("Big Chick") and Adam Sanders (Atlantic Island, NJ) held pocket deuces ("Ducks"). The board rolled out T 8 5 5 K and the Ducks held up. One Big Chick was busted and the other was left short-stacked. Adam chipped up to about 35k.

Adam asked me to send a shout-out to the "36-ers"! Consider it done.

They're down to 22 tables now, so fewer than 220 players remain.
