Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Mortensen Wins Small One

Carlos Mortensen has one of the finest records in the history of the World Series of Poker. It's hard to argue with more than $10 million worth of tournament winnings. He will be looking to add to that here in Event 20 and so far it's a pretty good start.

We recently watched Mortensen tangle with one opponent on a board showing {10-Hearts}{j-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. Mortensen was on the button and called one bet of 400 from his opponent on the turn. The {j-Diamonds} then hit the river and both players opted to check.

"What you got?" Mortensen's opponent asked.

Mortensen simply replied by turning over {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, which was good enough for a pair of sixes and good enough to take down the pot.
