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

Spinning Chips Away

One of cricket's all-time greatest players Shane Warne is in the field and having a go at making a name for himself in the poker world. We recently arrived at Warne's table with a {9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop out on the felt and with 10,000 already in the pot.

At this point Warne's opponent led for 3,650 and Warne made the call. Both players then checked the {9-Hearts} turn and it was on to the {q-Spades} river. Warne's opponent shoved all in for around 11,000 here and Warne thought deeply for almost a minute before folding his hand and sending the pot away from his stack.

For your information, Warne's largest career poker cash came in 2010 when he finished third in the $10,000 buy-in event at the Victorian Poker Championships in Australia - an event which Jonathan "xMONSTERxDONGx" Karamalikis won. That was worth a $40,000 to Warne and was his first and only five-figure poker score. Let's see if he can add another one with a deep run here in the World Series of poker Main Event.
