2010 World Series of Poker

Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Hand #59 - Kent Washington

Kent Washington opened shoved in early position for 161,000 and Arthur Vea called in the highjack seat. The rest of the players folded and the hands were tabled:

Washington: {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Vea {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The {Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop was troublesome for Washington.

“How about a ten for a sweat!” someone from the rail yelled.

The dealer obliged, planting the ultimate sweat card on the turn; the {10-Clubs}. Washington entered the river with a dangerous draw and hit when the {2-Clubs} fell.

Vea stormed off in anger and Washington clapped in elation. Washington now sits with about 340,000 chips and Vea has about 450,000 chips.
