Hands #67-69 Pulusani Gets a Lucky Chop

tayke2 • Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #67 - Michael Rocco raised to 105,000 from the button, and he took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #68 - Rocco raised to 100,000, and Sandeep Pulusani moved all in for about 600,000. It folded back to Rocco, and he too kicked his hand in, giving Pulusani the pot.

Hand #69 - Pulusani raised to 110,000, and it folded around to Rocco in the big blind. He made it 250,000 to go, and when Pulusani moved all in, Rocco quickly called.

Pulusani: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Rocco: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}

Pulusani was in big trouble going to the flop, and he picked up some chop outs as it came down {q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. Pulusani could now catch an eight for a chop, and sure enough, the {8-Spades} hit the turn. The only way the hand wouldn't end in a chop is if a jack, king, or ace came on the river, but that card was the {10-Spades}, keeping Pulusani in the tournament.
