Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Maria Doubles... with Quad Aces!

[user80015] • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

From the button, Allen Bari put his big stack to good use by pushing for roughly 9,000,000. With Maria Ho situated in the small blind, she made the call for her 810,000-chip stack. Sean LeFort passed in the big blind, and the cards were placed on their back.

Bari: {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Ho: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

Although Bari was caught making a button-move, he was only a slight underdog until the flop fell {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Now needing to snag a runner-runner straight to eliminate Ho, the {A-Clubs} on the turn sealed the deal for Ho gifting her a double to 1,760,000 as Bari slips to just over 8,000,000 in chips.
