Event 10 Day 1D: Half the Deck

$300 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack

Blinds: 75/150

A big hand was underway downstairs waiting for the 4-seat to make a decision after the 9-seat had moved all-in on the QcJd4c flop. She finally made the call and had him covered with 9d9h and her opponent rolled over KcTc.

“Best I could hope for,” he said matter-of-factly, “Half the deck is good for me.” But he was prepared, already pulling out cash for a re-entry. Not really half the deck but he had a big draw with 19 outs twice.

His hand improved on each street when he hit the 9s on the turn but now had to dodge a paired board. The 2c hit the river to end the hand and the 4-seat grabbed her hoodie to hit the cage for her re-entry instead of his.

The board is showing 219 entrants in the tournament with one more level of late registration and re-entry. The field should pass the 232 entrants from Day 1B before Level 5.
