Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Ho Sends One to the Rail

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

We found Maria Ho in the big blind heads up with an unknown player under the gun. The flop was {K-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}, Ho checked and the unknown player bet 2,000. Ho check-raised to 8,000 and her opponent three-bet jammed. Ho called, tabling {K-Hearts} {7-Spades}, and saw she was behind her opponent's {A-Spades} {K-Diamonds}.

The turn was a blank with the {4-Spades} but Ho hit her money card on the river when it fell {7-Hearts}. "I'm sorry," Ho said to the distraught player.

"No you're not," he replied as he gathered his things and left the tournament area.
