Event 47 - $2,000 No Limit Holdem
Day 3 Completed

Hand #175 - Blair Rodman Wins Event #47 ($707,898)

Hand #175 - Amato Galasso has the button, he limps, Rodman moves all in, and Galasso quickly calls with {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}. Rodman shows {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}, and he'll need to improve to bust Galasso.

The flop comes {J-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, and Rodman takes the lead with a pair of jacks.

The turn card is the {3-Hearts}, and Galasso needs to catch a deuce for a chop (with five-high straights) or a king to win the pot and double up.

The river card is the {Q-Clubs}, and Blair Rodman wins the pot -- and the bracelet -- with a pair of jacks.

Amato Galasso is eliminated in second place, earning $448,808.

Blair Rodman wins Event #47 ($2,000 No-Limit Hold'em), earning $707,898, a Corum watch, and a coveted WSOP bracelet.
