15th Birthday Tournament of Champions
Level 13: 1,500/3,000/3,000 BB ante
Players Remaining: 6 of 20
Roy Winston was the chip leader at the last break but he never made it out of the first 20-minute level back. He dropped a few chips in the first few hands while Guo Chen was doubling through Tyng Low.
Then he saw Olivier Busquet move all in from the button for 34,000 and he called in the small blind. Charlie Hooks shipped himself from the big blind for near 100,000 and Winston called for the huge pot.
Hook was in a good shape to pick up a lot of chips and the flop was mostly harmless. Busquet picked up a gutshot wheel draw on the turn with Hook holding a heart. The river completed Busquet’s wheel, he tripled up, and Hook still had 67,500 behind with his kings for the rest. That was slightly more than Winston had remaining to send another sizable side pot to Hook.
