Richards Battles With Pham

[user20283] • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

We just caught the action in a hand between J.R. Richards and David Pham. When we arrive on the scene Pham had 2,800 out in front of him on the button while J.R. Richards, three seats on his right, had 1,250 invested.

Richards tanked for a bit before ultimately tossing in 5,000. Pham tanked for over a minute and Richards said, "Just let it go Mr. Dragon!"

Eventually Pham made the call and the the flop brought out {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Richards bet 9,250 and Pham folded after about two minutes.

Pham, one of the biggest stars of the game around the poker boom, has $8.8 million in career tournament earrings and two Main Event cashes under his belt. Pham's been around for a very long time, and he has probably seen it all, as his first tournament result dates back to November of 1992.
