Aguiar Wins Race, Has His Turn At the Top

Jon Aguiar- All Smiles

Didn't I just say something about the leader being a revolving door? Sure enough, we went back on the floor, and after another massive pot, we have a new chip leader: Jonathan Aguiar.

Action started with a player in middle position raising to 5,200. It folded around to Aguiar on the button, and he made the call. Nam Le folded his small blind, and the big blind wasted little time, announcing "pot". This was a bet of 22,000, and it was back on the original raiser. After about a minute, he reluctantly gave his hand up, and it was back to Aguiar. Aguiar tanked for about 90 seconds, all the while shuffling chips while the masseuse worked on his left shoulder. Eventually, he announced "pot" and the big blind quickly moved all in for around the same amount. Aguiar called, and the cards were tabled.

Aguiar: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

The original raiser said he folded {a-}{q-}, which was both good and bad for Aguiar. If his opponent paired, Aguiar would be drawing very thin, but that never happened, as the board ran down {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}. Aguiar scooped the pot, and it took the dealer about 60 seconds to transfer all the chips over to him. Aguiar is now sitting on a mountain of chips that by our estimation comes out to about 210,000.
