End of Level 12: Blinds 800/1,600/200 ante
Total Event 1 Entries: 810
Break time again for Flight A and they’ll get fifteen minutes off before returning for the final four levels of play.
A few minutes before the end of level 12, Lisa Pickell got her last 18,800 all-in good holding pocket Kings. Her opponent in seat 8 had pocket Jacks and she was in good shape to more than double up (there was a micro-stack all-in holding pocket 6s as well).
Just to put the icing on the cake, she flopped a King, then the case King came on the river, giving her quads. With that pot, she chipped up to roughly 45,000. She said at one point earlier in the day she was down to only 7,900, so she may have launched her epic comeback. It will not be an easy climb, as she has poker pros Matt Stout and Jamie Kerstetter in the two seats to her right.
Lisa has career earnings of more than $119,000, the lion’s share of which came when she won her WSOP Circuit ring along with $47,860 back in 2005.
