Event 35: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em

Action Dan


No-Limit Hold'em

Dan Harrington hasn't cashed in a World Series of Poker event since 2009 when he came in 252nd in the Main Event. Granted Harrington does not play very many tournaments any more, but a good start so far today could propel him to poker gold. Harrington has been steadily climbing since the start of the day and now possesses over 30,000.

We caught up with him a few hands ago finding him getting involved in a pot with Randy Lew. Lew had raised it up to 875 from the hijack and Harrington came along for the ride from the big blind.

The dealer spread a {6-Spades}{A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop and Harrington check-called a bet of 875 from Lew. The {j-Spades} on the turn allowed for both players to check. The same went for the {8-Diamonds} on the river.

Harrington flipped over {Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a pair of fours and Lew countered with {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a pair of nines.

Despite this minor hiccup Harrington is in great shape and surely possesses the experience and mindset to make a deep run here in Event 35.
