Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Popham Boats Up

• Taso 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

We got to the table and Morgan Popham was being pushed a huge pot of approximately 200,000 to bring his stack up to 325,000. We asked Popham what happened, and he said he got it all-in with {8-}{8-} on a {8-}{7-}{4-} flop. His opponent had flopped a straight with {6-}{5-}, but the board would pair sevens on the river to give Popham a winning full house.

Popham finished second earlier this summer in Event #2: $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha for $127,245 and added a 14th place finish in Event #37: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha for $11,957. He's proven he can play big field PLO tournaments and is now trying to prove his mettle in the biggest No Limit Hold 'Em tournament of the year.
