Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

The Squeaky Wheel Gets the Chips

Shamus • Nivel 1: 50-100, 0 ante

By far the most-talkative table in the relatively small Tan sectioning the early going has been Table 260. There we find both Grayson Ramage and Leo Wolpert, although both of them are staying mostly quiet during the early going. So have the rest of the table. It's Michael "Squeaky" Winnett whose doing most of the talking, and indeed it began with the very first hand.

Four players, including Winnett, saw a flop come {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}. A middle position player bet, and while chatting away Winnett was the only caller from late position. The turn was the {9-Hearts} and when Winnett's opponent checked Winnett's monologue continued.

"A sign of weakness!" he said. "I'll go ahead and take the first pot of the World Series of Poker then!" he added, firing a bet of two-thirds the pot. When his opponent didn't respond immediately, Winnett rejoiced. "Yes!" he said. His opponent took another 30 seconds for show, but finally let it go.

"Like mother always said," Winnett continued. "You can't win every pot until you win the first one."
