Marsha Wolak

Marsha Wolak is in the midst of another solid run in a Seminole Casino Coconut Creek event. She final tabled the Coco Poker Open Championship last September, ultimately finishing fourth for $70,000. Back at it in the Coco Poker Showdown, she recently hit a straight flush to bust an opponent and cross the 100,000-chip mark.

According to the table, the board laid Jd9c8c. Wolak was in position in a heads-up pot. Her opponent checked and Wolak bet. The opponent made a modest raise and Wolak called. The turn fell the 6c. Both players checked. The river was the 5c and the opponent moved all in for about 20,000. Wolak quickly called tabling 7c7x for a straight flush. The opponent claimed AxJx for top pair and was left stunned.

The hand earned Wolak a healthy pot and her stack grew to 120,000.
