Brian “XXX” Patterson, winner of this year’s PPO: The Pittsburgh Hammer Tournament, is one of the remaining 36 players.

Patterson has accumulated one of the largest stacks in the field.  At Table 6, Patterson took down a huge pot on the following hand:

Patterson opened in the cutoff to 4,000.  He got two callers.

Flop:  7♥ J♠ 8♦

Patterson faced a bet of 3,500 and called.

Turn:  J♣

Patterson again faced a bet, this time of 4,000.

River:  6♦

A bet of 4,000 was again made at Patterson.  Patterson called and won the pot with  A♠ 8♥ to K♦ 8♣.

 

Along with “XXX,”  another contender is Ray Joll from Mt. Washington, PA.  Ray went on an incredible run and swept three huge pots within 15 minutes.
