Lisa Parsons has done well thus far today, pushing up among the leaders early on and remaining there as we near the end of Level 7. Parsons is no stranger to doing well at the WSOP, having final tabled this event in 2009 (finishing seventh) and also making a deep run in the WSOP Main Event in 2008 when she finished 76th.
Just now Parsons saw a short-stacked opponent open with a raise from middle position, and when it folded back to her in the blinds she reraised, forcing a bit of thinking from her opponent and then finally a fold.
"I had a pair," said her opponent. "I did, too," said Parsons. Further conversation revealed Parsons probably had something better than the sixes or sevens of her opponent, and so it might well have been a good fold.
In any event, Parsons adds a few more chips to the tall stacks she's already built.
