Wilmot is All Set
When we arrived at Table 60 in the Pavilion Room the dealer had already flopped in a raised pot.
Matthew Wilmot checked and so too did an opponent in middle position. A player on the button bet 600 and both Wilmot and the middle-position player called.
All three players checked the on the turn, but after the fell on the river Wilmot led for 800. Only the middle-position player called and Wilmot rolled over for a winning set of deuces.
"That river cost me money I think," Wilmot quipped as he stacked his winnings. He has reason to smile though, he now sits with over 8,000 in chips.
