Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Maria Ho Got Rivered

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

A player in middle position opened the action with a raise to 2,300 followed by a reraise to 7,000 from a late position player. Maria Ho was in the big blind and moved all in for her final 10,000 chips. The original raiser got out of the way but the final opponent made the call.

Ho: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Opponent: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The board ran out a brutal {j-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and the river killed Ho's tournament life. As her opponent was offering his regrets, Ho told him not to worry and that it, "wasn't the first time that's happened this series."

"But hopefully the last," her opponent responded. Maria smiled and exited the tournament area.
