Week 9: Battle of the Ages: A win for Josh Harrison!
At the outer table Steve raises pre with 7-10. 4 callers. Flop the straight (6-8-9)Tom leads out for $1500. Mo calls. I raise to 4000. Tom folds, Mo calls. Turn 7. No checks, I bet, he raises, I shove. He has 7-8. River 8.
At the feature table Peter Pompeii bet big on the flop and Rob Winsler thought a bit and then jammed. Rob was dismayed when Peter flipped over pocket Queens vs his own AQ. Peter held sending Robert to the window.
Craig Rice was all in on the flop and RedHatDave, the initial raiser, called. Craig called for a J and he got it. Easy game!
Down to two tables Thang Phu, new to the table, knocked out craig Rice.
Austin Fowler was all in but Jacob Naumann tank folded.
At 500/1000 Thang opened 2500 in the small blind. Rob Winsler, short shoved his remaining 11k and Thang called flipping over 66 vs Rob’s 55. A 6 on the flop sealed the deal for Thang and Rob was sent to the rail.
In a huge hand Darryl Woodruff was all in by the river and Peter Pompeii found a fold.
After getting multiple shoves through, Jacob finally was called by Peter Pompeii whose 88 held.
