Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Sylvia Takes a Hit Early

• Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We found 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up Jesse Sylvia engaged in a hand where four players took a flop of {7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. The first player to act checked, prompting Sylvia to toss out a bet of 550. One player folded, the next called, and the first player to act called as well.

This left three players still active to see the {4-Hearts} hit the felt on the turn. There was one check over to Sylvia once again and he continued his aggression with a bet of 1,300. The late positioned player called while the first player folded. Sylvia and his now heads-up opponent saw the {Q-Clubs} complete the board on the turn. Sylvia bet 2,500 and his opponent quickly clicked it back to 5,000. Sylvia instantly hung his head.

"Really?" remarked Sylvia with a chuckle.

Sylvia went into the tank, intermittently looking down at his cards and looking back at his opponent for well over two minutes. Ultimately, Sylvia tossed out a call and his opponent rolled over {3-Clubs}{3-Spades} for a flopped set of treys. Sylvia mucked his hand and watched as the pot was pushed to his opponent. The 2012 November Niner is now down to about 19,000.
