Event 16: Lakatosh Leads

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH  

Players are still arriving and taking their seat.  Late registrations will be accepted through the break at the end of level 4.

Of course players who already registered my opt to sleep in and arrive late.

John Lakatosh was right on time and is taking advantage of these early levels.

 John Lakatosh

From his seat in the big blind, he got to the river with a board of K T 8 6 A.  John fired 4k, only to have his opponent on the button raise to 8k.

John gave it some thought, then re-popped it to 17k.  After a bit more thought, his opponent called, showing pocket Tens for a flopped set of Tens.

John rolled over QJ for the Broadway straight and the stone cold nuts.

After collecting that pot, John was up to ~60k, double the starting stack.  That's also good for the chip lead.
