Boutin Wins A Monster


"I call I have aces!" These were the words we heard Burt Boutin shout as we walked by his table. When we took a look, we saw that Boutin was setting himself up to win a huge pot, as he called his opponents all in with {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}. His opponent, who had about 130,000, held {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}, and would need a ton of help.

"Hold them no diamonds!" Boutin told the dealer before the flop came down {6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. It was about as good a flop as Boutin could have asked for, as his opponent would now need running kings or straight cards that weren't clubs to win the pot. There were no miracles on this hand, as the board completed {3-Diamonds} and {10-Clubs}.

After that hand, Boutin jumps all the way up to 340,000, and is one of our chip leaders as we approach one hour left in the day.
