Event 51: $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Howard Over Ross-Powers


Another all-in hand to report, this one ending with a big chip swing rather than an elimination.

After Jan Howard raised to 35,000 from the cutoff, Ross-Powers called from the button and both blinds stepped aside. The flop came {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. Howard led with a bet of 75,000, and after pausing just a beat Ross-Powers raised the minimum to 150,000. Howard didn't wait very long before pushing all in for 336,000 total, and Ross-Powers called the raise.

Ross-Powers: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Howard: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}

Aces versus queens, with Howard ahead. The turn was the {3-Hearts} and river the {K-Diamonds}, and Howard's hand remained best. With that one, Howard pushes up to challenge Dang for the chip lead.
