Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Vince Victorious Again


Over at the secondary feature table, Vince Van Patten has been gradually adding to his stack over the last couple of hours, pushing up over 400,000. Meanwhile, Jean-Robert Bellande suffered a setback a short while ago, and is now down to 348,000. Karina Jett also has lost a few and is down to 105,000.

Just now a short-stacked player shoved all in for 47,000 from middle position, and Van Patten called from the cutoff. "Wow," said Jett from the button, who thought a moment and then released her hand. The blinds folded as well, and the players tabled their cards.

Van Patten showed {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and his opponent {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. The flop came {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{9-Diamonds}, giving Van Patten a set while his opponent still had hopes for a straight. But the turn was the {9-Spades}, filling up Van Patten and making the {5-Spades} river no matter.

The co-host of the World Poker Tour is now up to 514,000.
