Back to Back Kings for Ho

  • Big Stax XXVI 500 7:30 PM
  •  Level 22 (10000/20000/20000)
  • Players Remaining: 56

Frank Ho had a bit of overdue luck, as his day started a bit slow not getting much of any good hands.  From the cutoff, Ho opened to 60k, Alex Jim from the button 3 bet to 150k, and Ho shoved his stack of 279k and got a quick call from Jim.

Ho: K♣K♦                                                                                                                                 Jim: 8♠8♥

Board: 9♥7♦J♥9♠K♦

The very next hand Ho opens again to 60k from the hijack.  Jim, from the cutoff goes all in for his remaining approx 400k, followed by Jon McFarland in the SB who narrowly covers both in chips.  Ho, thinks for a minute, then says, “I can’t fold, I have the same hand… I call,” then tables his K♥K♣.  McFarland: 10♣10♦ Jim:9♥9.  The board, once again, runs out clean for Ho for close to a triple up and take Jim out 57th.
