Event 9: It's the pants

$1,650 Six-Max Purple Chip Bounty NLH (Re-entry)

Blinds 300/600 Ante 75

Joey Weissman opened from the button to 1.3K and was re-raised by the player in the small blind to 3.4K. Joey thought for a few moments and announced another raise, this one to 7K. The small blind didn’t think long before announcing that he was all in. He was quickly called by Joey who turned over pocket Aces – well ahead of the pocket 9’s his opponent held. The board changed nothing and Weissman won the pot to move his stack to just over 130K. “It’s the pants,” Joey joked. “They never believe me.”

There are 35 players left with an average stack of 40K (67 big blinds) with slightly more than 3 hours left to play.
