Event #10: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Blumenthal Gets One Back

• Taso 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

The action folded around to Eddie Blumenthal in the cutoff who raised to 29,000 before the flop; Darren Wong was the only caller from the button, so they went heads-up to the flop of {9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{A-Clubs}, where Blumenthal check-called Wong's bet of 28,000.

Both players then checked the turn of the {9-Hearts} before Blumenthal check-called Wong's bet of 50,000 after the river fo the {8-Spades}. Wong tossed up his hand in the air in despair.

"Nice hand man, you got it," Wong sighed, showing down {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} for nothing but air. Blumenthal tabled {A-Spades}{3-Hearts} and that was enough to take it down.

There's a chemistry building between the stoic Blumenthal and the affable Wong - it could be the beginning of an "Odd Couple" rivalry over there on table 290!
