A bird in the hand
Above: Bluesville is the part of the Horseshoe Casino Tunica that hosts concerts. Boston and Charley Pride are coming according to the marquee.
I played in the Wednesday night tournament at the Horseshoe. There were 41 players who plunked down $110 to enter with five to get paid.
When there were seven players left, somebody suggested a chop. One person adamantly said no. Who do you think was the next person eliminated? She made a big raise. The big stack called her. The flop was 9-7-x and she moved all in, and big stack called. She turned over ♠K ♠7 and big stack showed her ♠A ♣9. The board bricked and she was gone. What was that all about?
Now somebody again suggested a chop. We gave big stack an extra $270 and divided the rest. Easy money.
