Moreno Bests Karam

Andrew Moreno (Day 2c)

Playing his second World Series of Poker Main Event, Andrew Moreno opened with a raise to 3,700 from the cutoff seat after the action folded to him. Marc Karam made the call on the button and everyone else folded.

The heads-up flop came down {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Moreno bet 4,300. Karam put in a raise to 12,200 and Moreno called to see the turn.

Fourth street was the {J-Spades} and Moreno passed the action to Karam, who fired a bet of 22,800. Moreno stood strong and made the call to see the {9-Diamonds} complete the board on the river. Moreno checked and Karam checked behind, opting not to fire another bullet.

Moreno tabled the {A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} for a pair of aces. Karam mucked his hand and Moreno won the pot to push towards 200,000 in chips.
