Austin Peck Never Needed To Hit
With the board showing , Austin Peck bets 13,000, which is enough to put his slightly shorter stacked opponent at risk. There is just over 10,000 in the pot and after some thought, his opponent asks, "Did you miss?" Peck doesn't answer but lets his cards do the talking after his opponent commits the rest of his chips.
Peck tables and, evidently, never needed to "hit" for his hand to be good. His opponent cringes before turning over a sizable pocket pair of his own but unfortunately for him, is no good. While his opponent heads towards the rail, Peck stacks up just over two starting stacks and the Texas native is off to a quick start in this Day 1B session.
Austin Peck - 42,000
