Event #6: $1,500 "Millionaire Maker" No-Limit Hold'em

Beckman's Pairs Hold Up

• Nivel 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Garrett Beckman has quite an impressive resume. He finished 31st in the 2010 WSOP Main Event as well as finishing 109th in the 2008 Main Event. He is off to a good start today.

When we came to his table we saw him win a flip when he was holding {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} versus an opponent who had {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} and his pair held up.

The very next hand he got all the money in while holding another big pair of {j-Clubs}{j-Spades} and again his opponent held a big ace. The {a-Spades}{k-Spades} to be precise.

As the dealer was ready to run out the board all the lights in the room dimmed. The table laughed thinking that this flip was a big showdown and the main hand of the tournament.

The board ran out crazy as the flop seemed harmless with {q-}{10-}{4-} but the turn gave Beckman's opponent a straight as it came the {j-}. Beckman was still feeling his run good and spiked a {4-} on the river to boat up.

The crazy board run out was bound to happen for this main event type hand. Beckman is feeling good and running hot with over 50,000 in chips.
