Event 5: Panning for Gold

$350 + $50 Big Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Hende Hamming it Up

The early stages of a tournament means we have to dig a little to find  interesting nuggets to write about.  Paul Hende (Redwood Valley, CA) is doing his part when he says, "stick around you might see something here."

On a board of Q J 5 8 4, Hende moves all in and his two opponents fold.  When the players want him to show an ace high bluff, Hende does the opposite and shows 6 7, the second nut straight.

Hende says he's had a good run recently in California and used the winnings to fly to Borgata to play in the series.  He was lucky enough to be holding one of the few alternate tickets issued on Day 1B for Event 1, but unfortunately his luck ran out and he didn't cash.
