Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Hartnett Playing Blind


So, Patrick Hartnett has decided to start playing blind. After he won one hand, he called a raise the next hand without looking at his cards. He didn't look until his opponent bet the river when he looked down to see pocket queens. The board was {K-}{J-}{10-}-X-X. Hartnett called on the end and was good.

He enjoyed this so much that he raised blind the next hand. Padraig Parkinson reraised and Hartnett called blind. He then checked blind on each street as the board ran out {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} until the river. On the end, Hartnett looked down at his cards and fired 25,000. Parkinson called.

Hartnett tabled the {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} for a club flush and won the pot. He's now up to 1.23 million in chips.
