Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Montgomery on a Tear

Scott Montgomery has been on a climb all day and now finds himself with about 70,000 chips. In one hand we just saw him play, a middle position player had made a raise to 1,200 with Montgomery re-raising by placing a stack of yellow (1,000) chips in the middle, effectively pitting his opponent all in. Montgomery got called and we were off to the races.

Montgomery: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Opponent: {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

The flop was no good when it paired Montgomery's opponent with {2-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Spades}. However, Montgomery picked up a flush draw which he missed with the {3-Hearts} turn, but made with the {5-Spades} river.
