Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Finding Aces Early

• Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We picked up a little pot on a {Q-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {7-Clubs} flop as the player in position bet 200. The big blind check-called, but Brad Booth squeezed in a check-raise to 700. The bettor called, the big blind folded, and it was heads-up to the {8-Hearts} turn. Booth bet 800 now, and that was called too, and the {A-Spades} landed on the river. Booth put out 3,000 this time, and his opponent finally surrendered.

Booth went ahead and showed his early {A-Hearts} {A-Diamonds}, and that pot pushes him just above his starting stack.

Tagovi: Brad Booth
