2013 World Series of Poker

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

McEvoy's Aces Cracked

• Nivå 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Tom McEvoy opened to 3,700 from middle position only to have Ernie Hou move all in for 29,000. McEvoy instantly called and the cards were placed on their backs.

McEvoy: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Hou: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The flop of {8-Spades}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} gave Hou a double gutshot, and when the turn landed the {K-Hearts} he started calling for a heart not realizing that he had turned the nut straight and that a heart would render him dead unless it was the {9-Hearts}.

The river landed the {2-Diamonds} and Hou was pushed the double to roughly 65,000 as McEvoy slipped back to 58,000 in chips.

Chips Count
Ernie Hou 65,000
Tom McEvoy us 58,000 -24,500
