$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 21: Blinds 6k/12k/2k
Michael Larkin (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) was all-in pre-flop for his last 136k. When his opponent in seat 1 called with AK, it looked like Michael would be headed out.
Then the board ran out A T 8 9 Q giving Michael a straight and the double-up to survive.
On the same table, Joe Calabia (Stuart, FL) got all-in holding pocket Aces against the pocket 8s of Nelli Shteyn. The board was all Joe: A 9 5 9 Q. He doubled up to ~340k with Aces-full. Nelli dropped to ~60k.
Elie Joseph (Salem, MA) is sharing the felt with this crew and has somehow avoided getting into the blog — until now, that is.
