Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Ho Increases


Staying aggressive in poker isn't just for men, as Maria Ho shows in the following hand.

After a player limped from under the gun and James Akenhead limped from the next seat, action folded to Ho on the button. She raised to 1,900. The big blind called, as did the first limper. Akenhead got out of the way.

The flop came down {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and action checked around to Ho. She stayed on the gas and bet 2,800. Both of her opponents folded and she collected the pot.
