Getting It Right

Mike Puno

On a board of {k-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Mike Puno fired out 6,500 in chips and got a call from the player sitting across from him.

When the {k-Diamonds} landed on the river, both players checked it down and Mike flipped over {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for the full house, beating out his opponent's {k-Spades}{j-Hearts}.

"No, no, no!" exclaimed some of the players as the dealer gave all the chips in the pot to the losing player.

"Three kings," the dealer said, before realizing that the Mike had hit a boat.
After the chips were pushed in his direction, Mike now has a stack of about 51,000.
