Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Ho's Stack Takes a Hit

• Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

We caught up with the action on a flop that read {J-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}. The player in the big blind checked, as did an early position player. Maria Ho fired a 7,500 bet, which landed a fold from the big blind. However, the early position player check-raised to 10,000 more to 17,500. Ho fell hard into the tank, but landed on a call after much deliberation.

The turn came the {7-Clubs} and Ho's opponent immediately slid out a stack worth 20,000. Ho went through the motions, but eventually folded her hand.

Ho's stack has slid to 87,000.
