Total Entrants: 139
We missed the hands, but the table recounted the action for us. Rodney Spriggs is in the big blind with Ax3x, Rick Congdon has A♠Jx, and all the money goes in preflop. The flop comes ten-high with three spades and no pairs for either player.
Spriggs says, "I guess I need the three of clubs on the turn."
The 3♣ hits the felt on the turn.
The river runs out clean for Spriggs to win the hand and he immediately runs down the aisle to celebrate.
An orbit later, Congdon raises from middle position to 2,100. Matt Ellis calls on the button and Spriggs calls in the big blind. The flop comes 2x3xXx. Spriggs checks and Congdon shoves for 11,000.
Ellis folds and Spriggs calls.
Congdon - AxKx
Spriggs - 5x4x
Spriggs calls for the A♥ on the turn, and dealer burns and turns the A♥, sending Congdon to the rail.
Spriggs - 50,000
