$350+$50 Almighty Stack NLH
Level 2: Blinds 150/300/50 ante
Brett Apter turned up in today’s field and his opponent had him in the tank. “It’s too early for this,” commented Brett.
At the river, the board read and it was relatively dry, except for the pair of 8s. After Brett checked, Seat 3 bet 11,100, bringing us back to the aforementioned tank. Seat 3 had his head down, but decided to open up for some table talk, possibly prompted by Brett’s shirt, “Do you play a lot of WPT events?” “Yes” came the reply.
Finally Brett tossed in a chip to call and his opponent said “you got it” and rolled over for the missed flush draw. Brett tabled for Aces-up to take the pot. Kathleen Waterhouse, who was on the button for this hand, said “you got me too — I folded Ace-Ten [earlier in the hand]”.
Brett had four cashes at the WSOP in June, plus four cashes at other venues, so he’s coming off a busy month.
