Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Chopped Pot For Corkins

[user169806] • Nivel 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Hoyt Corkins, sans trademark cigar hanging from his mouth, raised to 6,000 when first to act on the button. Terik Brown called from the small blind and both players watched on as the big blind announced he was all in for 44,000.

Corkins paused for a few moments before moving all in himself, causing Brown to rock back in his seat and say "Damn!" loudly. Brown mucked and the two active players revealed their hands.

Corkins: {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Big Blind: {A-Spades}{3-Clubs}

The {9-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop came into view and Corkins asked for a deuce so that his lowly five-kicker would play. The {8-Spades} on the turn meant it was quite likely the pot would be split, which is what happened when the {9-Diamonds} paired the board on the river.
