P0ker H0 Extends Chip Lead

• Nivå 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Mark Kroon

Mark "P0ker H0" Kroon is enjoying himself today with the chip lead. In a recent hand, Kroon was in the big blind, and as other players were acting on their hands, he said very loudly, "This would be a really good time for a walk." As one player hesitated before folding, Kroon took a swig of beer and told him, "You don't wanna raise my blind." The other player disagreed, though, and raised to 2,800. Kroon started to look at his cards, and told the raiser with a smile, "I'm calling if I see a napkin here." Sure enough, Kroon called, and the dealer spread {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} on the flop. Both players checked, and then the preflop raiser bet 3,500 when the {3-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Both players quickly checked when the river was dealt, and Kroon turned over {a-Spades}{10-Spades}. His opponent mucked, and Kroon took the small pot to bring his stack up to 530,000.
