Big Stacks


Here's a look at some of the big stacks. A little note about Nick Yunis is that he busted this event on his first buy-in, ran over to hop in a single-table $2,600 satellite, won that and then hopped back into the event. Looks like that second bullet has paid off so far.

Baumstein's Broke

Scott Baumstein's trip jacks were no good.
Scott Baumstein's trip jacks were no good.

When we reached the table, the board read {j-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}. Scott Baumstein led out for 8,300 into a pot of around 14,500, and Jen Harman called. The river was the {q-Clubs}, and Baumstein led again - this time for 15,300. Harman tanked, took a close look at Baumstein's stack, and moved all in, having him covered.

"Aces? Queens?" Baumstein spat, ripping his sunglasses off of his face. "I'm not bluffing this time."

He riffled his chips, thinking aloud.

"This is so sick. I have a jack obviously."

He eventually stuck his stack in the middle, and Harman turned over {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} for a full house. Baumstein stood up, tabled {j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, and left the tournament area.
