Maria Ho

Maria Ho was in the big blind with less than two blinds left in her stack. Her rail (which included Vanessa Selbst and Tiffany Michelle) started chanting "Walk! Walk! Walk!" as the rest of the table folded. It got to Konstantin Puchkov in the small blind who decided to play the villain by raising it up. "Boooooo," said several members of Ho's rail. Ho made the call.

Maria Ho     

The board would run out       to give Puchkov the pot. She stood up and said "good luck everyone" and then walked over to Puchkov and said "I hate to tell you this but nobody likes you right now" before adding "just kidding."
