The countdown continues to the WSOP....
Here is an actual hand of poker played at the Bellagio. You decide what the best course of action is based on the information provided below. You are going to be playing against me. Oh yeah, you are playing for over $1 million! Good luck!
First place is over $1 million.

There are 74 players left.
The blinds are $4,000-$8,000 with a $1,000 ante.
You have $430,000 and are in early position.
I am the player in the big blind with $440,000.
The player under the gun who is extremely tight and has $225,000, raises for $23,000. The next player folds. It is your turn and you have 10d-10h. You call. Everyone folds to me in the big blind. I call. The pot is $82,000 with three of us taking the flop.
The flop is Jd-10c-7d.
I check. The initial raiser checks. You have a set and bet $60,000. I call. The initial raiser folds. The pot is now $202,000. (You have $347,000 left.)
The turn is 2d. A possible flush, and you have the 10d.
I bet $80,000. You call. The pot is now $362,000. (You have $267,000 left.)
The river is the 3s.
