Jack Binion's 2004 World Poker Open recently wrapped up in Tunica, MS. The tournament attracted more media coverage than in the past thanks to the explosion of televised and online poker.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal has a nice write-up.
(Warning, possible WPT spoiler to come.)
Reese goes "all in" on his king and five, which wasn't a strong hand. Still, he had to do something, and he made a bold move. Bad timing.
Tippin has a pair of queens in his pocket, and he's feeling confident. He also goes all in.
But so does Greenstein, who's sitting on an ace and king.
The flop is dealt: another ace, king and six. The cards are a godsend to Greenstein. Reese is done, but if a queen pops up in the last two cards, Tippin remains alive. The turn: an eight. The river: an ace, making Greenstein's hand even better.
For the first time in memory, two of the final four players go down on the same hand.
For those of you with the Travel Channel, the final table will be broadcast on April 21. (Hat tip to Mike over at Half-Bakered... give him a visit!)
