Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Cordero Pays One Off


Alex Cordero is here, just a day removed from his third-place finish in Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em last night. Cordero was the end-of-day chip leader for the first two days of that event before Dominik Nitsche eventually passed him and everyone else to take the bracelet.

Cordero is doing what he can today to try to build a stack, though finds himself just a bit below the 30,000 with which he started as we move through the last level of the night.

Just now Cordero was involved in a hand with an opponent in which the pair had reached the turn with the board showing {4-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Cordero's opponent, playing out of the blinds, fired a bet of 3,300 (about two-thirds the pot), and Cordero called.

The river was the {K-Spades} and again Cordero's opponent was betting, this time tossing out a single orange (5,000) chip. Cordero plucked a matching chip off of his stack and set it forward to call, then nodded in acknowledgement when his opponent turned over {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a flush.
