Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Hammerling Hammers His Table

Philip Hammerling started the day with only 15,400 in his stack but that hasn't stopped him from becoming one of the biggest stacks in the room.

We missed all the excitement but walked by the table as large stacks of chips were being counted and moved. As it turns out, a short-stacked player shoved all in with the {j-}{j-} and then a second player shoved over the top holding the {a-Spades}{k-Spades}. Action folded back around to Hammerling who looked down at his cards, the {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. He wasted no time in shoving his stack into the frey as well and everyone else quickly got out of the way leaving the three players to duke it out.

The board ran true for Hammerling when it came {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} and he sent both the other players to the rail. After all his chips were stacked and counted they nearly eclipsed the 200,000 mark possibly making him our current chip leader.
