Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Portaro Not Intimidated

• Nivå 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We arrived at the table, just as Australian Bruno Portaro opened to 225 from the button. His opponent in the small blind then bumped it up to 725, which saw the big blind get out of the way.

“725? What? Well I want to know what glasses you are going to put on?” asked a surprised Portaro.

In front of Portaro’s opponent were three pairs of novelty glasses, all with different messages written upon them. The gentleman picked up and put on the pair that read “Call,” and Portaro obliged.

The flop came down {j-Clubs}{a-Spades}{9-Spades}, and the player in the small blind threw out a continuation bet of 750.

“Just making sure you have the same pair on,” joked Portaro, as he again made the call. “I don’t want to see you put on the ones that say “the nuts,” he added.

The {4-Diamonds} fell on the turn, and a quick check from his opponent, saw Portaro fire out 1,100, which was enough to take down the pot.
