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

Can't Get the Past Back, Notes Black


A player on the button raised to 1,350 and got two callers from the blinds, Nick Maimone and Andy Black. The flop came all spades — {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} — and after Maimone checked, Black fired 2,000 and only the original raiser called. The {4-Clubs} fell on the turn, and both players checked.

The river brought the {A-Spades} and quick check and exhalation from Black. His opponent fired 3,100, and Black folded, saying "bad last card" as he did. "Fold a bet on fourth street?" asked Black, and his opponent initially replied that he would have, but then qualified the response by saying he might have called certain-sized bets.

Black traveled down the "what if" road a little further, then laughed and said "doesn't matter" as the next hand was dealt.
