Cash Carpenter came by the media table to tell us he just won a 120,000-chip pot. So, we head over to his table to see some action.
We missed the preflop betting round, but we arrive at the table with a flop of T♣T♠4♦ already out. The action is on Cash Carpenter on the button, who bets 16,000. James Mackey in the small blind asks how much and calls. The big blind folds.
Heads-up to the turn, the 5♠ is added to the board. Mackey checks and Carpenter checks behind. The river is the A♥. Mackey checks again.
Carpenter thinks for a few seconds but then checks his option. Mackey tables Q♠4♠ and Carpenter mucks.
James Mackey - 258,000
Cash Carpenter - 230,000
