Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

A Change of Plans

[user101598] • Nível 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Ralph O'Brien entered Day 4 of the 2013 Main Event with just 63,000 chips, and when he arrived at his table, he told his neighbor Jose Pinedamoncada that all he wants to do is make the money.

"I can fold forty-five times," O'Brien announced.

O'Brien didn't stick to his plan, however, moving all in on the button during the first orbit. The player in the small blind released, and the action was on Alexander Kuzmin in the big blind.

"This is my only World Series," O'Brien told the Russian. "I'm not going in with crap."

Kuzmin eventually called, and the hands were tabled.

O'Brien: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Kuzmin: {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

The {3-Hearts} peaked through the window of the flop, and for a heartbeat it seemed like some sort of sick foreshadowing, but it was followed by harmless cards: the {9-Hearts} and the {5-Clubs}. The turn and river bricked {q-Hearts}, {6-Clubs} respectively, and O'Brien doubled.

"Yes!" he said, excitedly.

The very next hand, O'Brien raised, and received no callers.

"What are you doing?" Brandon Steven asked him after the hand, baffled because he knows all O'Brien wants to do is cash. "Go away! Leave! Go to Starbucks!"

O'Brien debated the decision, then finally peeled himself away from the table and hasn't been seen since.
