I heard a rumor that somebody at the WSOP borrowed $4,000 and won $850,000 in A No Limit Game? This supposedly happened last week. Does anybody know anything about this story?
I don’t know if that’s a growth of something that did happen ten or so days ago wherein a person did buy in to a NL game for a few k and cash out 250.
It was a player from Texas named Hecter. I heard he started in the big pot limit Omaha game with $8k lost most of that, borrowed $5k from a friend and another $5k from same friend (who I was playing with and told me directly). Hecter came and paid back the $10k and said that he had cashed out a big winner (I heard just under $200k). He then jumped into a very big NL HL game and, when I came own the next day to play in the 12 noon tournament he had about million dollars more or less depending on who you listen to. The following day I noticed a half HE, half Omaha game with a big blind structure and many strong players (including Johnny Chan) and hecter was in there ramming and jamming. I left my game at about 8 that evening and went by his table to see how much of his money had gone bye. It looked to me that he had about $75 more of their money.
This is that’s been going around the floor. Last week Hector, a Texas restaurant owner, was stuck $150,000 in a game. He was down to his last $4,000 when he went on a rush and won $800,000. Whether that’s a net or gross $800,000 I don’t know.
