Retallick Out of the Blocks Early


Daniel Retallick is now close to one million in chips after taking out an opponent in one of the first hands on table 287.

As Retallick recounted to us (as he was still stacking up his chips), the opponent had moved the last of his money into the middle with {Q-}{Q-}, but Retallick called with {A-}{K-Hearts} and it was off to the races.

Retallick picked up a boatload of outs with the {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop, but the turn and river came running kings to give him trips instead. Could you have hit that board any harder?
