Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Face the Ace


There was 2,500 in the pot with a flop reading {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades} when Chris Ferguson checked over to his opponent in Seat 1. The man reached into his pocket and popped a Mentos into his mouth before announcing, "Check."

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and both players checked, as they did when the {9-Hearts} hit the river. Ferguson showed {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} but couldn't beat the {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} of Seat 1. Ferguson rapped the table and seemed content with his stack of about 35,000.
