Ho Collecting Chips Early

Nivel 11 : 500/1,000, 0 ante

Maria Ho came into today as one of the short stacks, with just 12 big bets left. However, she has won back-to-back pots that has quickly seen her stack nearly triple.

We caught up on the first hand on the turn as the board read {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Ho had fired out a bet, and she was called by her two opponents, Carlos Mortensen and Tony Cousineau. On the river, the {10-Clubs}, Ho and Mortensen checked, and Cousineau fired. Ho was the only caller, and Cousineau announced "straight", but he didn't seem too confident in it. He was right to think so, as Ho rolled over {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{k-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for a flush, good enough to scoop the pot.

We walked around to scope out other action, and when we got back to the table, we saw Ho in the middle of another big pot. This time, she was heads up with Mortensen, and they both had a few bets in front of them as the river was dealt on a board that read {5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{q-Spades}{k-Clubs}. Ho quickly fired out a bet, and Mortensen tanked for a bit before releasing his hand, giving Ho another early boost at the start of the day.
