Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Roche's Set is G-O-O-D


We came on this one with the board showing {Q-Spades}{4-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and a number of chips already in the middle. Mike Roche's opponent had pushed all in for his last 2,800. The tattooed Roche drummed the table for a moment with the knuckles of his right hand, the letters "G-O-O-D" visible as he did. Finally he used that hand to slide forward the chips to call, then, with his other hand — on which the knuckles read "E-V-I-L" — he turned over his hand.

"Just a set," he said, showing {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. His opponent stood as he showed his {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} — a lesser set of fives.

The river was the {A-Diamonds}, and we've lost another player. The next hand began, and Roche was raising before the flop, again pushing out chips with his "G-O-O-D" hand.
