Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Suck, Re-Suck Ensures Ho Double

Maria Ho heads to her rail to celebrate

From the small blind, Allen Bari pushed and Maria Ho made the call for her remaining 1,540,000.

Bari: {Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Ho: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}

Caught with his hand in the cookie jar again, Bari would love the look of the {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} flop as it gave him additional outs to a straight.

One of those outs would snag life on the turn when the dealer dropped the {7-Diamonds} giving Bari a straight.

As Bari's rail let out some excited cheers, Bari held his hand up signaling to wait for the river. His read would be spot on as the {9-Diamonds} would spike on the river to give Ho the better straight and send her soaring up to 3,100,000 as Bari slips to below 7,000,000 in chips.
