Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 1

Richard the Lionheart

Level 10 : 400-800, 100 ante

After opening to 1,800 Richard Whitebrook heard an opponent announce himself all in for his last 9,000 or so.

Holding {A-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} in the hole, Whitebrook quickly called the player down, and he found himself in a dominant position over {A-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

The flop came clean for Whitebrook, as the dealer fanned the {q-Spades}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}, but with players at the table calling for a sweat, the {3-Spades} peeled off on the turn to grant their wish.

Whitebrook was now fading the deck's spades and jacks, but the river was the {6-Diamonds} to keep his kicker out in front, while kicking his opponent to the rail in the process.

"Thanks guys..." Whitebrook told the table after the safe river card. "I don't need any more sweat."
