Joshua Pedraza - 8th
Joshua Pedraza - 8th

Joey Weissman made a standard raise from the cutoff and Joshua Pedraza defended his big blind. The flop was {6-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {5-Diamonds} and we missed the action but understand there was a bet and call from one of the players. On the turn we saw the {A-Diamonds} and Pedraza check-raised to 300,000 after Weissman had bet 140,000. Weissman called pretty quickly and we were soon looking at the {3-Spades} on the river. Pedraza then surprised everyone by moving all-in and Weissman made what looked like the easiest call of his life. Literally, seconds later Weissman was flipping over a pair of aces for the boat and Pedraza mucked his hand and left his seat…he was out! The dealer turned his cards face up to show {Q-Hearts} {8-Spades} for the insides of a balloon.
