Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Racener Down Early

mnuwwarah • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

In a pot that really illustrates how the early levels of the Main Event are all about pot control, John Racener had a red T5,000 chip in front of him on a board of {5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, a raise to an unknown amount against the player on the button who had bet 1,250. The player on the button then made it 9,300, and Racener quickly called.

Button: {9-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Racener: {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Both players had eights full of fives, and they chopped.

"I was ready for someone to turn over quads there," a player remarked.
