The lucky hoodie is working its magic. After being down to 5,300 chips, Bill Sanders (pictured) has managed to build his stack to 191,000.
In his latest outing, Todd Tucker opens to 7,000 from under the gun and the action folds back to Sanders in the big blind. Sanders calls and the flop comes K♥Q♣6♠. Both players check.
As the dealer adds to the 4♣ to the board, Tucker says to Sanders, "You should bet the turn."
"I should?" Sanders asks, and quickly follows up with, "Okay, I bet 8,000," tossing in the chips.
Tucker quickly calls. The river brings the 3♠.
"I bet 13,000," Sanders says, putting in the chips. Tucker mulls it over, all but chewing on the earpiece of his glasses. After a minute, Tucker cuts out calling chips, thinks for another ten seconds, and tosses them in to call.
"I hit a pair of threes on the end," Sanders says, turning over 7♥3♥.
Tucker winces and mucks without showing.
Bill Sanders - 191,000
Todd Tucker - 166,800
