Event 17: Dueling Boats

$1,000 + $90 Deep Stack Six-Max No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

When you see a flop of jack, jack, ace, you have to figure somebody has hit.

John Wertman, who was short-stacked down to about 95K, was sitting pretty with his pocket aces. But he slow played them against Al Mottur of Chevy Chase Md., first in with 30K and then raising all-in after Mottur bet 35K after the river.

That river card, a six, gave Mottur his own boat as he was holding pocket sixes.

That's kind of how slow playing is supposed to work - giving Mottur just enough time to bet into the better Full House.

They're two from the money at 26.
