Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

The Real Moohaha

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Justin Morgenstern goes by the name of “The Real Moohaha” and it’s not hard to figure out why after five minutes in the same room as him. His loud laugh is ringing out across the tournament floor and his table mates, including Phil Hellmuth, are doing their best not to let it get to them.

Morgenstern was in a hand against the small blind when he was sat in the big blind. They had checked it down to the river of a board reading {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Morgenstern quickly called a bet from his opponent who then said, “Six.” and he turned over {10-Clubs} for the better flush. He proceeded to give a loud and long, “muahahhaha!!” to the face of his opponent telling him he was so bad and that he was his honey bear.

If he was looking for a reaction so far no one has bitten and Morgenstern is steadily accumulating chips so he could be around for a while. He was particularly keen for this reporter to know he had more than Hellmuth.
