Players Registered: 410

As we were walking through the signature room we noticed a big pot brewing over on table 8. A player from the small blind had bet 1,000 into a decent sized pot with the board reading {5d}{10d}{5h}.

Action was on Ni-Kesha Bowman who took a few moments before announcing she was all in for a total of 7,700. The player in the small blind wasted no time in calling.

Bowman: {10s}{5s}
Small Blind: {5c}{7d}

Bowman silently fist pumped as she had her opponent drawing dead to a chop. He would find no such luck as the {As}{Jc} on the turn and river changed nothing.

After the hand another player at the table tried to make casual conversation. “I thought she may have pocket 10s!”

The small blind quickly leaned forward in his chair and fired back at the player. “I didn’t come here for poker lessons sir, especially from you!”

The table got quiet as the player continued to mumble under his breath but even the tense moment couldn’t break the spirit of Bowman who quietly stacked up her newly acquired chips with a smile on her face. She is now back over the starting stack of 15,000.
