Event #23: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

Karr Crashes into Appleman

[user66118] • Level 8

We're honestly still spotting fresh faces for the first time today, and we've just spotted a good one. Mickey Appleman is no stranger to these mixed games. Forty WSOP cashes, and four gold bracelets -- all four in different games. His first bracelet was in 1980, and his last in 2003. It looks like he hasn't had a haircut since then, and he's taken to a white athletic headband to keep his mop in check. In any event, Appleman is most certainly on our radar now, and we pick him up as he gets tangled up in a pot.


McLean Karr opened with a raise, and Appleman made it three bets. Karr called, and he check-called a bet on the {5-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {5-Clubs} flop. The {6-Hearts} turn drew checks from both men, and Karr took his cue to fire out on the {4-Clubs} river. It was a mistake. Appleman quickly raised, and Karr tank-called.

He couldn't beat {A-Hearts} {Q-Hearts}, and Appleman takes the pot to move up to about 17,500.
