Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Queens for Maria

Shamus • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante
Maria Ho

Maria Ho was just all in with her tourney life on the line with {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and up against an opponent's {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}.

The flop came {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs}, and Ho's hand remained best. The {10-Hearts} fell on the turn, eliciting an "uh oh" from one of her tablemates. But the river was the {K-Clubs}, and Ho doubles back to about 28,000 as we head to the break.

"Never easy," said Ho afterwards as she stacked her chips.
