Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Mortensen Picked Off

We walked over to 2001 WSOP Main Event Champion Carlos Mortensen's table to find a board of {Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} strewn in front of two players. One of those players was Mortensen, who had a bet of 3,900 laid out in front of him.

His opponent sat pondering a call for over a minute before finally moving in a good majority of his stack. When the call was made, Mortensen immediately flung his cards away to the muck. His opponent tabled {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a flopped pair of sixes and was able to scoop up a pot that brought Mortensen's stack down under the 5,000 mark.
