Minimal Losses For Ho and Guillen

Level 1 : 50-100, 0 ante

We caught up to Maria Ho in a pot with one other player who was in the small blind. On a board of {10-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{6-Spades}, the player had bet 350 into Ho who made the call on the button. The river was the {K-Diamonds} and once again the player in the small blind bet, this time for 400. Ho made the call again, but mucked when her opponent turned up {A-Spades}{7-Clubs} for trips.

At another table down the way, Angel Guillen was also involved in a pot. From early position, a player made a raise to 300. Action folded around to Guillen in the small blind who made the call. The big blind also called. The flop came down {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}{7-Spades} and action checked to the original raiser who bet 400. Only Guillen called this time. Both players checked on the {Q-Spades} turn as well as the {3-Spades} river. The original raiser shoed his {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and that was enough to take down the pot.

Even though Ho and Guillen lost these small pots, people say the Main Event is a marathon, not a sprint, and they have still got a long way to go.
