Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Two Pair For Harman


Jennifer Harman and Annie Duke are sitting next to each other only to be separated by the dealer. We haven't seen any clashes between the two but it's very likely there have already been some blind battles.

Duke is currently third on the all-time money leaderboard with $4.2 in live tournament earnings while Harman is in sixth with $2.6 million. We are dealing with two of the most successful women in poker in this tournament and it was just Harman who managed to take down a nice pot against one of the other players.

Harman called a raise from the player in the hijack when she was on the button and after both blinds folded the flop came down {K-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{6-Spades}. Harman called a 300 chip bet and the turn was the {Q-Clubs}. Her opponent bet again and Harman opted to raise making it 1,200. The call was made quickly and the river was the {5-Diamonds}. Harman's opponent called another 600 and mucked when she tabled {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}.

Harman is up there with a nice stack while Duke came all the way back up to just a couple of bets below the starting stack.
