Event 15: Top, Top - No Good

$500 + $60 NL Deep Stack

Grippo Continues to Grind

With more than 150 players from the money, players are grinding. One player's all in shove with top pair, top kicker is no good and Diane Grippo (Holbrook, NY) takes advantage.

The board is J 8 3 and Grippo's opponent shoves for 25k. Grippo calls with pocket 8s and her set is way ahead of A J, which doesn't catch up. Grippo's now close to 100k, while top, top is bye-bye.

This table is one that believes in the "Blogger Curse" and Jamie Kerstetter (Monroe Twp., NJ) says, "I keep paying him (Gorilla) to come over." Her hope is that players featured in the blog eventually crash and burn.

Level 12 (1k/2k/300 ante) is underway with 19 tables remaining.
