Event #9: $525 Superstack Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em

Joaquin Melogno Eliminated in 6th Place ($13,115 + $5,199)

MartianNews • Level 46: 350,000-700,000, 85,000 ante

Joaquin Melogno opened to 1,470,000 from under the gun, Lucio "WizardOfAz" Lima defended his big blind and the flop came down {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Both players tapped to the {6-Spades} turn when Lima led out for 4,060,000.

Melogno called and the {6-Clubs} river completed the board. Lima pushed for more than enough to cover Melogno who was not put to the test. In the end, Melogno called his 11,892,512 stack into the middle, tabling {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} for jacks over sixes.

It was not enough though as Lima showed {q-Spades}{10-Hearts} for a flopped lady to scoop the pot, leaving Melogno out in the cold, taking a walk to the payout desk.
