Old School

I played the $200 Limit tournament in the Orleans today. This was part of the Orleans Open, a tournament I have a bit of a soft spot for. The Orleans run their tournaments very well too, everything was like clockwork today, and an impressive 299 runners ponied up for the limidonkament.

I busted out around 50th, but it was once again a testament to the edge a good limit player has in these things how many hands I actually had to lose to bust out. Here's my favourite hand, which was frankly worth $200 on its own. I love the bluffing hands in limit, just for all the people who say it can't be done. Passive woman limps in MP, SB completes, I check the BB. Flop Tc 6h 3h checked around. Turn Kc, checked to me, I bet, woman folds, SB calls. River As, check I bet he sighs, shows me Qh Th and throws it away. A couple of hands later he says "You had a King, right ?". "Yeah" (I know lies make Baby Jesus cry). Sigh again. "Yeah, obviously you had a King". Or 7c4c. Pwned.

Finally for 2 points each can you guess which two members of the Poker Hall Of Fame played in this prestigious event ?
