Early Saturday morning I called Tina Tellone, a close friend of mine, to see about her joining me in Daytona Beach Kennel Club for a day of poker action. Tina arrived 45 minutes late and on her 4th hand found herself on the button with pocket kings. Five women limped in to the hand with her and the blinds to go, she announced, “this is NOT a button raise I just happen to be sitting where it is located.” With a raise of $600 everyone called including the blinds. The flop came with an Ace, as if there would be any doubt. The small blind let out with $600 and everyone folded to Tina you could see the steam shooting out of her ears and she called the bet. Later I asked why and she said, “I had to see what Ace was so valuable on a 50/100 blind level with a pre-flop raise of $600“. They checked it down from the flop and the woman turned over Ace/Eight off-suit.
After the hand I hear from the table where she was, “just so you know my chips have GPS tracking in them and I will be getting them back”. Sure enough Tina did just that. The very next level got them all back and then some! She did it by limping in with pocket 8’s and spiking a set on the flop! The poker gods were smiling as she boated against the woman’s nut flush at the river. Tina doubled up through the very woman who cracked her Kings.
She was definitely on her game correctly calling hole cards hand after hand, she was unstoppable. Accurately assessing the final table Tina offered the woman expected to make it to heads up a chop. No thanks! Final table action lasted 45 minutes and it was Tina vs. the reluctant chopper. This woman wasn’t willing to concede the trophy or title even though Tina had the chip advantage. Tina laughingly said, “That’s fine, I’ll win it outright” and it only took 14 hands.
I am reminded of a similar reluctant chopper story from my background. It was the 2008 WSOP Ladies circuit event at Harrah’s New Orleans. First place was $16,700 with $9,185 for second. After clearing most of the final table I ended heads up. I offered my opponent very generous even money deal with me retaining the title and the gold WSOP Circuit pendant necklace. She declined even though I had 85% of the chips. I won the tournament two hands later.
Tina was on Cloud 9 with her win and decided pickup some extra funds from the cash game. I think she was more excited about winning the trophy than the cash. Trophies are tangible reminders allowing us bragging rights and reminiscent feelings of triumph. Congratulations, Tina! Love you!
