Melanie Weisner Working Wonders

Nivel 9 : 300/600, 75 ante
Melanie Weisner Relaxing Here on Day 1
Melanie Weisner Relaxing Here on Day 1

A huge cheer went up over in the Silver section of the Brasilia Room, and we rushed over to find a slightly intoxicated rooting section expressing their undying admiration for one Melanie Weisner. With her {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} tabled against an opponent's {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. and the board reading {3-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, it appeared to be yet another preflop all-in between identical hands ending in a chopped pot. Appearances, however, can be deceiving.

According to the stunned onlookers on the rail, who were treating Weisner like a rock star after this play, the pro check-called bets on the flop and turn, before her opponent shoved all-in on a bold river bluff.

After what was reported to be a five-minute dive into the tank, Weisner made the call with just ace-queen high, earning her half of the pot as only a professional can.

While the dealer stacked the chips in even proportions, Weisner told her opponent "too bad you didn't have ace-ten." The man responded by saying simply "you know you're sick, right?" With her newly burnished table image and a mountain of chips at her disposal, Weisner looks to be a force as Day 1 heads to its conclusion.
