Winston Walks Kings into Aces

Peck Picks a Big Pot

Poker Pro and guest Blogger Roy Winston suffered a bad beat earlier this week when his opponent hit a three outer on the river to eliminate the 2007 Borgata Poker Open Champion from the Deep Stack. Today in the Championship Event, the New York, NY resident runs kings into aces and is the first person out of Day 1B.

At the end of the first orbit, Vladimir Peck (Chicago, IL) opens for 250 and Winston, from the big blind, makes it 800. Peck comes over the top to 2,450 and Winston makes it 7k.

Peck pops it to 15,500 and Winston says, "let's play a big pot," and is all-in.

Peck snap calls and Winston's suspicions are confirmed as Peck shows aces. After the board runs clean, Winston is left with 400 chips and is eventually busted, ironically, by the KK of Jack Zissler (New York, NY).

"The flop was all low cards, says Winston, "so all the money was getting in anyway. "What are you going to do, I guess I'll go play cash."

"When he made it 7 thousand, I thought about just flatting (calling) because I didn't want to scare him off," says Peck. But after further consideration he continues, "I didn't want him to hit a set of 8s or something so I was just trying to take it down."

Peck is now sipping a cocktail to calm the nerves of such a big score and to "play more aggressively."

Level 2 (75/150) is underway.

Winston Can't Believe It
