Dana Castaneda Does it With Aces

Dana Castaneda Here on Day 2

We heard Dana Castaneda announce a call and watched her table {A-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}, before she stood and walked away from the table.

Matt Weber had moved all in for his big stack, and with {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} he was put in an unenviable position after Castaneda snapped him off.

"Give me a sweat at least," pleaded Weber, knowing he would need a miracle overcome the pocket rockets.

When the flop came {5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, Weber got his wish, and he was now drawing to a ten, but the turn ({9-Spades}) and river ({8-Diamonds}) left him lacking.

Castaneda circled the table the whole time, unable to look at the board cards being delivered. When the hand was won, she exhaled in relief, saying "I just don't want to go home." With her huge stack late on Day 2, she most likely won't be going home until tomorrow at the very latest.
