Guillen Doubles with Aces

Angel Guillen (Event 14)

After the player in the hijack seat raised to 625, Angel Guillen reraised all in from the cutoff seat for 2,200. The button and blinds all folded before the hijack seat quickly announced a call.

Guillen tabled the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and was in good shape against his opponent's {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}. The flop, turn and river ran out {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Guillen doubled up.

Guillen is coming off of a solid performance down in Uruguay for the Latin American Poker Tour Punta del Este Main Event where he finished in second place for $126,240. That's a nice, hefty score, but it's actually only the third largest of the Mexican professional's career.

In 2009, Guillen had a great year on the live felt, earning himself just under a million dollars and blasting onto the poker scene. After finishing in the money in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $27,500, Guillen took third in the LAPT Punta del Este Main Event for just shy of $100,000 in May. He then took to the World Series of Poker and placed second in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event for $312,800 behind Keven Stammen. Just over a week later, Guillen was right back at another WSOP final table, but this time he took care of business and won the $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $530,548. In total, Guillen has over $1.2 million in live tournament earnings.

Speaking of Guillen, Sarah Grant "wedged herself" between him and Andre Akkari earlier today.
