Julie Whitworth is unstoppable right now. She has an enviable record at MPNPT stops, having recorded four cashes on previous MPNPT tours. This will be her fifth cash and it could well be a big one, if her current coruscating run of fortune and skill holds.
Most recently, she leaned heavily on the former aspect – four-bet jamming As Qs for 20 big blinds, only to be snap-called by the original raiser holding ace-king.
It looked as though she might have played her final hand, though a flush draw arrived and she was left sweating the river for a final spade to keep her hopes alive.
“Spade, spade, spade” she implored. The poker gods obliged. A spade arrived.
“Yes!” Whitworth mentally exclaimed. She was now up to an above-average 470,000. “I really think I can do it this time!” she said.
Who are we to argue?
