Event 37: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

Porter Doing Work


That Rep Porter knows all the games is a well known fact. His results in all variations of poker show that he's always someone to look out for, and today he's at it again.

Earlier this series the double bracelet winner finished 14th in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. and sixth in he $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw. He's looking to make another run in this event, as he just won a nice little pot off Marco Traniello.

Pot Limit Omaha

We caught the action on the flop reading {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. Both blinds checked, Porter checked in middle position and Traniello checked as well from the cutoff. Stephen Chidwick was on the button and he bet 2,200. Both blinds folded, both Porter and Traniello called.

The turn was the {8-Spades} and all three players checked.

On the river the {8-Clubs} showed up and Porter checked once more. Traniello grabbed chips and fired out 4,000 after which Chidwick folded. Porter took four orange 1,000 chips and put in the call.

Traniello showed {J-}{10-}{9-}{4-} for a missed straight draw, and his bluff had failed against Porter's {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Porter raked in the pot and is now up to 35,000 chips.
