Mike Harvey picked up a 6-figure-poker-payday last month when he took down the opening event for the WPT Shooting Star Series at Bay 101 Casino in San Jose for about $120,000. Here in Event 1 of the WPTDeepStacks Series, Harvey finds himself grinding a short stack and looking for some luck.
A very-shortstacked player before Harvey moves all-in, and Harvey moves his 18,000 stack in the middle after looking at only one card. Everyone else gets out of the way and here we go to check out the hands.
His opponent peels 9♣️ T♣️ and Harvey says he saw a K before he moved in .. the other Card ... one better...yep, he has AK and another player at the table bemoans aloud the fact he folded 66.
The flop has a K in the window, Harvey moves into the lead and the player with 66 pats himself on the back for a "good fold."
The board blanks and Harvey moves up to 23,000.
