Event #43: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship

Violette Hangs On


Cyndy Violette: (X-X) / {5-Hearts}{q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{a-Spades} / (X)
Carlos Mortensen: (X-X) / {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} / (X)
Ian Gordon: (X-X) / {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{6-Spades} / (X)

Carlos Mortensen completed, and Cyndy Violette and Ian Gordon both called. On fourth, Gordon checked, and Mortensen bet. Violette called all in, and a swarm of players instantly surrounded the table. Gordon called as well, meaning Violette had to survive two hands to avoid bubbling.

On the side, Mortensen bet, and Gordon called down. Mortensen showed {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for queens up and no low. Gordon mucked, and Violette tabled {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Diamonds} to best Mortensen with kings and fives. Rather than hitting the rail, Violette tripled her stack. She lost the next hand, however, and was back under 50,000.
