Man in the Fedora Over 40,000

Ty Stewart - the man with the fedora.

Ty Stewart, or the man in the fedora is now over 40,000. Just before break, we caught the WSOP Executive Director in a big pot.

After a middle position limp, Stewart raised to 1,600 from the cutoff. The player on the button called, and the limper called too.

Flop: {9-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {2-Spades}

The limper checked. Stewart bet out 3,600, the button called and the limper folder.

Turn: {2-Diamonds}

Ty didn't think long before putting his opponent all in. The button thought briefly, then called.

Stewart: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Button: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

The river bricked out, and the player on the button was sent to the rail. Stewart is now around 42,000 chips.
