Holden Hits One Time

Shamus • Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Samuel Holden

It folded around to Samuel Holden on the button who open-shoved all in for 1.515 million. Holden got one caller in Khoa Nguyen from the big blind.

Holden showed {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Nguyen {A-Spades}{9-Spades}. The flop came {6-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, giving Holden a gutshot. "One time," he said, and the dealer promptly delivered his request by turning over the {7-Hearts}. There was no reaction, however, to the sight of the straight, as all remained quiet. Indeed, a river spade could still ruin things for Holden. But the river brought the {6-Clubs}, and Holden doubled up.

"My one time worked," Holden said with a smile.

We'll see if he requires any more one times, as Holden is still on the relative short side with 3.1 million. Nguyen, meanwhile, still has a healthy 15.2 million, which keeps him near the top of the counts along with Ryan Lenaghan.
