Playing Big


I showed up to see three players in the hand, the flop, turn and river already out and there's 13,000 in the pot before any river-bets are made.

The board reads Kc Kc Kc Kc Kc

Charisse Case checks from the BB, the UTG player makes it 6,000 and WPTDeepStacks Thunder Valley defending champ Jasthi Kumar makes it 16,000. Case takes quite a while to think before mucking, and the UTG player does the same, with Kumar raking is a pot equal to a full starting stack of 30,000.

The UTG player lays down Kc Kc, getting away from trips and says aloud to Kumar, "Did you have QT?" "He had way more than that," says Case, while Kumar just rakes in the pot and smiles.

There was a LevelUp as I wrote this, so action is now at

Level - 3
Blinds -75/150
Antes - 25
Players Left - 70
