Failla Hammers a Big One Home with Aces

DougChase • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

The action began with a raise from early position by Ngoc Hoang. Harry Lodge moved all-in next and Will Failla re-shoved from the button and Hoang called.

All hands were turned face-up and it was Failla with {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} in the lead, followed by the {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and finally the {k-Spades}{q-Hearts} of Lodge.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{j-Hearts} and now Failla need to fade a heart, queen, or any ten.

The turn card was the {2-Clubs} and no help to anyone.

The river card was the {8-Diamonds} and Failla's aces held up, which eliminated Lodge and left Hoang with 135,000 chips.

With that pot Failla catapulted to nearly four million chips and is the current chip leader.
