Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Ruberto Runs Like California Chrome

Chad_Holloway • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Mark Darner opened for 26,000 from the button and Tony Ruberto announced that he was all in for 211,000 from the small blind. The big got out of the way and Darner asked for a count before making the call.

Darner: {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Ruberto: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

On the day the Belmont Stakes is being held, it was only fitting that the hand was a race. Fortunately for Ruberto, he ran like California Chrome and secured the double after the board ran out {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{3-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}.
