Event 1 Day 1D: It Must Be Nice

$100 + $25 No Limit Hold’Em Deep Stack

Blinds 600/1.2K Ante 200

There are 41 players remaining with 15 minutes left in Level 11. Players will go on a break after Level 12 and then come back for one last hour of play. Those lucky and good enough to make the cut will come back Sunday afternoon in hopes of taking down some serious cash.

A few moments ago, a big pot went down at a table. We caught up with the action with about 20K in the pot and a flop reading KSJD7S. The player in Seat 4 was first to act and led out for 11K. His opponent in Seat 7, a cliche of a poker player if there ever was one… hoodie, shades, noise reduction headphones and no hint of a smile… raised it to 25K. His opponent thought for seconds before making the call. The turn was the QS and Seat 4 checked as soon as the card was turned over. Seat 7 also checked, almost instantly. The river was the 4S putting four spades on the board. Seat 4 again checked with no hesitation. Seat 7 grabbed four 5 K chips and tossed them casually into the middle. Seat 4 shook his head and peeked back at his cards. “I know you have it,” he said, and carefully placed out the call. His opponent did have it, turning over AS5S. “It must be nice,” a dejected Seat 4 said, turning over JSJH for a flopped set that turned into the second nut flush on the river.
