Chad Holloway Called Down by Fellow Cheesehead Eddie Blumenthal

Chad Holloway (Seen Here Playing in Event #1), Will Have to Mount a Comeback if he Hopes to Win his Second Gold Bracelet of the Summer

We caught our PokerNews colleague, and recent bracelet winner Chad Holloway involved in a confrontation with his friend and fellow Wisconsin native Eddie Blumenthal.

The board read {5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{7-Spades} by the river with nearly 7,000 in the pot already, and Holloway had two orange T5000 tournament chips in front of his cards, having check-raised Blumenthal's bet of 3,100.

Blumenthal tanked for a solid minute, while Holloway did his best impression of a statue, but eventually Blumenthal tossed out his own pair of orange chips for the call.

Holloway's sigh told the story, and Blumenthal rolled over {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for top pair on the turn. After flopping the nut flush draw, Blumenthal had found a red card that worked just as well as a diamond, and with this win he is off to a great start here at the Main Event.
