$10,600 Main Event

The Rich Get Richer

Chad_Holloway • Level 7: 300-600, 100 ante

Back in October Alex Antonios won a bracelet in the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific $2,200 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em event, not to mention AUD$128,784 in prize money, and right now it looks like he could very well bag the Day 1c chip lead.

In a recent hand, we stumbled upon the action with around 20,000 in the pot and a board reading {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{a-Spades}. A player in middle position had checked and Antonios took the opportunity to bet 7,900. His opponent thought long and hard before making the call, but mucked just as soon as Antonios rolled over the {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for two pair.
