Event 16: Free Rolling

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

On a board of A J K Q♠, Mike Morton (Metuchen, NJ) is in a tough spot against Tarciscio Ferreira (Long Beach, NY).

Morton bets 5500 and Ferreira moves all in for nearly 25k total.  Morton is in the tank for a 90 seconds and is obviously scared of a flopped flush. "I can't get away from this," as he tables 10♣ 10♠ for a straight.

Ferreira tables J♣ 10 for the same straight, but with three hearts on board is free rolling for the flush.

When the 9 hits the board, Ferreira lets out a, "yeah," and a clap as he doubles-up.  Morton takes the beat in stride and is down to 17k, lamenting. "I should've folded, I kind of knew I was playing for half the pot."

Level 8 (250/500/50 ante) is winding down.
