Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Good Start For Meinders

Brian Meinders has already had a successful summer, managing to take down his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout. Meinders has had a good start here on Day 2 of the Main Event.

We recently caught the action of a hand between Meinders and Michael Lipman. By the time we arrived at the table there was a {9-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop showing and Meinders was on the button with Lipman set to act. A bet of 2,500 was sent Meinders way, with him making the call to see a {8-Spades} land on the turn. This time Lipman checked and Meinders bet 2,500. Lipman called and a {j-Hearts} was dealt on the river. Another check from Lipman would see Meinders again bet 2,500 and Lipman would again call.

Lipman: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Meinders: {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Meinders pair of eights was enough to trump Lipman's holding as Meinders raked in the hand little pot.
