Flops Few and Far Between

$2000 +$200 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em
Borgata Summer Poker Open 2010

Championship Event Final Table

After the excitement of that first hand, things settled down. One big hand took place between Ed Corrado and Billy O'Neil.

On the turn, the board showed J 7 3 J and Ed fired 200k. Billy tanked for a bit, then called. River was a King and both players checked. Ed showed A9 for ace-high, but Billy took the pot with AQ.

Most hands are concluded with a single pre-flop raise, but occasionally there are fireworks:

Frank Dellaria raised to 85k on the button, then Mirza Nagji made it 300k straight from the big blind. Frank tanked, then surrendered what he says was pocket 9s.

The level concluded and blinds went up to 20k/40k with 4k antes.

Dean opened for 90k from the hijack and Mike called from the big blind. The flop came A 8 2 rainbow. Both players checked. Turn was a King and both checked again. River was a 5 and Mike bet 200k. Dean said something about how bad the flop was for him as he mucked his pocket Queens. Mike was nice enough to show his A8 (flopped two pair).
