Default Hand #229 (MB Takes 3rd)

Hand #229 where MB is eliminated and takes 3rd.
The blinds have been increased to $20K-$40K with a $50,000 ante.
The updated chip counts are:
Jamie Gold.........$64,000,000
Paul Wasicka......$14,000,000
Michael Binger.....$11,000,000

Gold limps from the button and Wasicka limps from the small blind. Michael Binger raises to $1,500,000 from the big blind. Both Gold and Wasicka call and the flop comes T65. Wasicka checks, Binger bets $3,500,000 and Gold moves all in. Wasicka folds and Binger calls. Binger shows A10 and Gold turns over 43 for an open ended straight draw. The turn is the 7 and Gold makes a straight. The river is the Q and Michael Binger is eliminated in 3rd place.

Gold had a lot of chips to play with, but how lucky can a guy get.
MB's only mistake probably was that he didn't go all-in pre-flop.
Easy to say after-the-fact, huh. AT is pretty good in a threesome.

I think that Gold really reads players well and his gabby style and goading plays on the minds of his opponents. They basically play into his hands plus he had a lot of luck for this WSOP. I think that if a winner makes it into the top 100 the following year. He's got some skills, cause everyone will have studied his style and will be gunning for him from here on.

he had chips to gamble, he had 8 outer that would give him the nuts there..
even if he lost this pot, he would still had a decent stack to win WSOP..
he had luck to win this WSOP - any players needs a luck to win a tourney with many entrants. i didn't know where to watch this wsop but i saw from this thread how he kicked out allen cunningham (with 45%, now he won with 35%) - but what would happen if he didn't won his coin flips - i think he wouldn't win this one?! but as i said, you need luck, and it comes with skill
