Tilly against Bob Bright

The game was held at Wynn Classic poker room in Las Vegas. Bob Bright played with Jennifer in the unlucky hand for her.  

The American player has been engaging in poker for more than 30 years and he got the first prize money in 1990. At that time, Bob took the 12th place in Razz tournament and earned $2 722.

30 years have passed since then, and “poker market” began to offer much bigger prize pools. There were J-9-10-4-10 on the board, Tilly went all-in for $80 000 with a pair of pocket tens, and Bob called with 7-8s.

Bright hit a straight flush and won $160 000 pot, while Jennifer lost with quad of tens. This hand became one of the most profitable for Bright, but at the same time, it turned out to be one of the most unprofitable for Tilly.
