Smith's Bullets Gun Down the Button

TerranceReid • Level 8: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Henry Porcaro raised on the button to 5,500 before immediately getting three-bet by Elliot Smith to 20,000.

Porcaro eyed up Smith's stack. He decided to go all in, and had his opponent covered. Unfortunately for him. his opponent snap called and said, "I have aces."

Smith did have {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}. Porcaro revealed that he made the move with {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds} from the button. "I only make that move once per tournament," said Porcaro.

This time, the board gave him not much with {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts}. The turn brought in a gutshot with the {2-Diamonds}, but the {8-Diamonds} missed him.

"That play would have worked almost all the time," said Smith. "I admire the effort."

Smith scooped the massive pot that catapults him to one of the day's chip leaders.
