Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em

Hu and Hood Play For Stacks

BenDemory • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Anthony Hu made a bet that appeared to be an all-in of 147,000 from middle position after the board was {9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{q-Spades}{4-Hearts}, with 180,000 already in the pot. Shawn Hood thought for a moment before throwing a single green chip to make the call, but Hu had left himself a single red chip worth 5,000.

The river was the {2-Spades}, and after some time, Hu eventually checked with the smallest stack in the room. Hood threw in the 5,000 bet to put him at risk, and Hu took his time deciding.

He could be heard asking, "Are we still at seventy-two?"

There was a pay jump looming and Hu continued to wait, until both the clock and floor manager were called to the table. With ten seconds left, Hu made the call and both players turned over their hands.

Anthony Hu: {j-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Shawn Hood: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Both players had flopped top pair and made two pair on the river, but Hood's kicker was best which sent Hu to the payout desk.
