Level Up, Chip Up!

Event 1 - $500 + $60 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em

Levels just recently went up to 25k/ 50k/ 5k ante when this whopper of a hand happened.  I wasn't able to get the suits, but here's the 1st hand account from Richard Lardner (BROOKLYN, NY)...one of the grinders that busted from the 3-way all-in:

James Boyle (HAVRE DE GRACE, MD):  99
Richard Lardner (BROOKLYN, NY):  KJ
Unknown   :                   77

The flop came J47...placing the player with pocket 7s in great shape with flopped set.  The K on the turn gave Lardner some hope, but unfortunately the 9 on the river put the nail in the coffin for both Lardner and the player with the flopped set of 7s.  Boyle (who had both players covered) rivers the top set and now has over 3 million in chips.  Lardner is eliminated in 84th place.
