Main Event

Alvarado and the Ladies


A player in middle position opened with a standard raise, and JC Alvarado three-bet to 8,100 in the blinds. Mr. Raiser called, and off they went heads-up.

The dealer spread out {10-Spades} {5-Diamonds} {2-Hearts}, and Alvarado continued out with 8,600. His bet was called, and the two men checked through the {A-Spades} turn. On the river, the {2-Diamonds} paired the board, and Alvardo fired back out with 12,800. Mr. Opponent spent a few long minutes in the tank before plunking the call into the pot.

Alvarado tabled {Q-Clubs} {Q-Spades} for queens up, and a muck from his opponent shipped him the pot to increase his count to about 140,000.
