While PokerNews hostess Kristy Arnett may be better known behind the felt, she is certainly no slouch at the felt and she is showing that today. This could be due to the series of "Strategy with Kristy" articles which see her interviewing some of the best players in the world. Arnett recently interviewed Jason Koon following his 2nd place finish in Event 3 of this year's WSOP. Maybe she learned something from Koon and will see herself at the final table of this very event. If the hand we just watched her play is anything to go by, that could be a definite possibility.
When we arrived at the table, Arnett was going up against one opponent with a flop showing . Arnett was first to act and casually flicked out a bet of 600. Arnett's opponent called and a hit the river. Without much hesitation Arnett again bet, this time making it 1,100. A call would see a complete the board on the river.
At this point Arnett slid her remaining stack in. It was around 6,000 to her opponent, but it was too much as the player's cards went into the muck, sending Arnett the nice pot.
