Deuces Good Enough for Tracy Hugh

Tracy Hugh

The last woman standing is still alive and well after a double-up against the chip leader.

Pre-flop, Tracy Hugh got it all-in from middle position and got a call from Mike Puno. With the crowd on its feet, the cards were tabled:

Tracy: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Mike: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The flop of {5-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, keeping Tracy well ahead.

After a turn of {j-Diamonds}, though, she would need to avoid some extra cards as Mike picked up a possible straight draw.

It was all good for Tracy as the {4-Diamonds} did not change anything, keeping her in the tournament with a stack of about 470,000.

Even after that double-up, tournament director Lloyd Fontillas still found the opportunity to needle Tracy a little bit.

"After that double-up, Tracy has still never reached the average chip stack," he announced to the crowd with a laugh.
