Championship: Neil Blumenfield Hits a Half Million

$2,500 Coco Poker Open Championship
Level 16: 2,000/4,000/500 Ante

Neil Blumenfield opens to 10,500 in early position, and James Brown calls on the button. Both blinds call as well, and it’s four ways to the flop.

It comes Kc6d5c, and Blumenfield continues for 16,000. Brown calls, the blinds fold, and it’s heads up to the turn. It’s the Jd, and Blumenfield checks. Brown now takes leads the betting for 27,000, and Blumenfield calls. On the 8h river, Blumenfield check-calls another 35,000.

“One pair,” Brown announces.

Blumenfield shows QdQc, and Brown mucks.

That pot moves Blumenfield very close to the half-million-chip mark, and it looks like he’s ticked just above that milestone as he stacks the pot.

Neil Blumenfield – 510,000 (128 bb)
James Brown – 270,000 (68 bb)
