He's Mad I Tell You... Mad!

Mike Caro - "The Mad Genius"

We've walked by Mike "The Mad Genius" Caro's table here in the Pavilion room countless times today but had yet to catch him involved in a hand until just recently.

A player in middle position raised to 1,200 and Caro re-raised to 3,200 from the hijack. Action folded back around to the original raiser who tossed in a call.

The flop came {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and both players checked. When the {3-Hearts} fell on the turn the first player bet out 3,000 and Caro thought for a bit before calling. The river brought the {5-Spades} and the first player checked it over to Caro who went into the tank. Caro carefully studied his opponent, no doubt looking for a tell of some kind, and played with his orange T5000 chips looking like he wanted to toss one out as a bet.

He eventually decided to check and flipped up his {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} which prompted the other player to muck his hand. After a bit of banter between the two, the other player admitted he held ace-jack which seemed to surprise Caro a bit.

Caro has been maintaining a decent stack on Day 1 and after the hand was up to 51,000.
