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

Portano Doubles

Desmond Portano opened to 40,000 from under the gun, and the action folded to Derrick Huang, who three-bet to 100,000. Portano quickly moved all in for his remaining 60,000 or so, and Huang tank-called.


The {a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop gave Huang a strangle-hold on the hand, but the {3-Hearts} on the turn gave Portanto outs to a flush. The {5-Hearts} spike on the river, giving him said flush, and he doubled on one of the first hands of the day.

Derrick Huang us 550,000 -132,000
Desmond Portano 265,000 140,000
