$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Ho Drowned on the River

With a board reading {Q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{5-Spades}, Maria Ho checked from the small blind and the player in the big blind fired out 1,400. An under-the-gun player then raised, Ho moved all in for approximately 5,000, and the big blind folded. The UTG player made the call and was left shaking his head when the cards were turned up.

Ho: {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
UTG: {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

How had turned a full house and needed to dodge an ace, eight, and queen on the river. Unfortunately for her, the dealer put out the {A-Diamonds} and her opponent spiked a bigger full house. Ho was disappointed but handled it well, no doubt looking forward to a little sleep after traveling to Melbourne from the United States earlier today.
