Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Today's Segment of "The Nuts"

Michael Cooper

Michael Cooper opened for 50,000 from middle position, and it folded to Dustin Dirksen who reraised to 150,000 from the small blind. The BB got out, and Cooper declared he was all in. Dirksen shrugged as he said "I call."

The pair tabled their cards and laughed -- {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for Cooper and {A-Spades}{J-Spades} for Dirksen. The board brought no flushes, and the pair chopped it up.

"Ace-jack is the nuts!" said Dirksen. "Well, it was suited," said Cooper with a smile.

They continued to talk about the hand, and Cooper added a comment relating to the fortitude required of him not to have backed down to Dirksen's reraise: "I took a shower this morning... they were still there!"

Cooper has 435,000 now, and Dirksen 655,000.
