PokerNews's own Frank Op de Woerd had a great start at his first table, quickly building his stack up to 14,000 in the first two levels. He later got moved, and stayed fairly stagnant while at that table. However, he won a big pot to end his time at that table, and has just taken down another huge pot to vault to the top of the chip counts.
Action started with the player to Op de Woerd's right raising to 1,800. He flat called, as did the button. The flop came down , and when it was checked to him, Op de Woerd fired 3,600. The button was the lone caller, and on the turn, he fired out 8,400. Once again he was called, and the hit the river. Op de Woerd then shoved all in for around a pot sized bet, having his opponent covered. He was called off, and Op de Woerd showed for top pair top kicker. His opponent kicked his hand in, and after stacking up his chips, he was looking at a stack of 89,000, which is right at the top of the counts by our estimation.
Could there be a second bracelet in the works for Team PokerNews?
