Event 2: Spar For The Course

$350 + $50 + $100 Black Chip Bounty NLH (Re-Entry)  

James Sparacio (South Jersey) - 600,000 - chip leader

Moments before the break James Sparacio in the big blind more than spars with his opponent in the small blind.

James held A K.  Heads-up action escalated to James 5 betting, Opponent jamming with 75 bigs and James quickly calling.

Sparacio A K vs. Opponent's 10♣ 8♣ .

Both players flopped a pair.  Opponent turned a flush draw but bricked the river.

Board ran: K♣ 8 4♣ 9♣ 2

So a 6-bet shove with 10-8 experiment right before the bubble gives Sparacio the 600,000 pot and tournament chip lead.

  1. I hope (know) that wasn't really the board - because then I would've made a flush. "Both players flopped a pair, opponent turned a flush draw, but bricked the river" is 100% correct. I think it was AcTs4h 6c Qs

    I could lie and say it's irrelevant, but w/ the board you have, I should've still been in the tournament, with the chip lead.

    James essentially owned my soul this hand and I made that perfectly clear on twitter claiming that I "essentially made 13 mistakes in a single round of betting."

    I had played super solid up until that point, had a little too much confidence after a half decent weekend at Delaware Park.

    Fun times, hope to run into James again. Pretty sure he owes me a beer.
