Big Action On First Hand!


Just as we were typing that play had been declared underway, Oliver Buiquiran declared all-in and was called by Michael Boling, who was sitting to his right!

Oliver: {j-Spades}{9-Spades}
Michael: {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}

A big crowd gathered in the spectators area and people were wondering what Oliver had gotten himself into.

Oliver and the crowd then erupted when the flop came {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts} to give Oliver a straight/flush draw.

The turn then got everybody screaming and jumping as it brought the {7-Spades} to complete his flush. Michael, though, pointed at his {a-Spades} and shouted, "one more spade!"

That spade never came as the {9-Diamonds} landed on the river, giving Oliver a huge double up. He is now at 500,000.

Chip Counts
Oliver Buquiran 500,000
Michael Boling 425,000
