Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Ashby Takes it Easy


No-Limit Hold'em

Richard Ashby raised to 1,500 from the cutoff and Allen Cunningham defended his big blind. The flop came down {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and both players checked.

The turn was the {5-Hearts} and Cunningham fired out 2,500, Ashby called and the {7-Hearts} on the river double paired the board. Cunningham flicked out a 5,000 chip, and after two seconds Ashby called.

"Ace high?" Cunningham asked his opponent who turned over the {7-Clubs} and the {a-Clubs}. Ashby had a full house and took down the pot.
