Ten was the charmed number for his cards, but $25,000 is likely Veteran in Love's new favorite figure, as that's what he walked away with from Bodog.com's Sunday $100k guaranteed yesterday.
Attendance was up to 927 players for the Bodog.com Sunday tourney this week, but none of them could best Veteran in Love, who parlayed a few key hands involving tens into a nice weekend payday.
The first: When play hit three-handed and he called an all-in bet from fellow final-tabler rvrmonkey with pocket tens.
rvrmonkey showed Ac-5s, and two blanks (including a meaningless 10) sent him home in third place.
The final hand also came down to the magic tens, when his heads-up foe Vatche pushed all-in with 9h-2h and was called by Veteran In Love with 10h-5c.
The flop came Jh-10c-3d to put Veteran In Love in the lead, and a 10 on the turn definitively finished it off, sending Vatche home in second place and leaving Veteran to revel in his victory.
Here are the rest of your final table results:
|1st||Veteran In Love||$25,000|
