Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Monnette Looking for More

John Monnette has already had tremendous success at this year's World Series of Poker. Monnette firstly took down the cash and the gold bracelet in Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud and then a few days later finished 3rd in Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better. Another big result here could see him become very tough to catch on the Player of the Year leader board.

Unfortunately, Monnette hasn't had a great start today. We recently watched as Monnette and one opponent took part in a hand that saw the dealer spread out a {7-Spades}{k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} board. Monnette called a single bet from his opponent on each street and then mucked when the player flipped over {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a turned set.
