Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Munro Smells a Bluff

Richard Munro recounted a recent hand to us which saw him regain the lead of the Seniors Championship and we will recount it now for you, minus the colorful language.

Three players including Peter Costa with {a-}{k-} were involved in the hand and saw a flop of {9-}{7-}{6-}. Some betting on the flop saw Costa fold his hand but Munro with {8-}{8-} made the call and they saw a turn card {a-}. The player to Munro’s right then went all in for 75,000.

Well, Munro just didn’t believe the story, and if the fella had it then he had straight outs that could come to the rescue. Munro made the call and sure enough the all in player turned over {q-}{10-}. The turn and river bricked and Munro claimed another scalp.
