No-Limit Hold'em

Jonathan Duhamel led out for 16,000 on a flop of {2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} and Calvin Anderson made the call. The 2010 WSOP Main Event champ tossed out another 26,000 on the turn ({7-Clubs}), Anderson again called, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board.

Both players checked.

Duhamel showed {j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for a pair of sevens, and Anderson took the pot with {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a pair of tens.

The very next hand, Duhamel raised to 7,500 in early position, and he was called by Anderson (direct left), Bryce Yockey (hijack), and Lyle Berman (big blind). The dealer fanned {7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, the action checked to Anderson, and he bet 14,000. Only Berman called.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, Berman check-folded to a bet of 18,000 and Anderson dragged a second pot.

"Do you wear the sunglasses in just no-limit?" Eric Wasserson asked Anderson after the hand.

"Sometimes in PLO," the 2014 bracelet winner responded.

"What about stud hi?" Wasserson followed up, gently ribbing Anderson.
