Event #51: $400 Colossus

Loiacono Picks Up the Aces

ajlamers • Level 46: 4,000,000-8,000,000, 0 ante

On the first hand after the break, Jeff Loiacono ripped all in for 19,000,000 in the small blind. Paul Hizer was in the big blind and asked for a count before making the call to put Loiacono at risk.

Jeff Loiacono: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Paul Hizer: {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

"I only saw one ace!" Loiacono shouted to his rail. The flop of {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} was extremely safe for Loiacono who was looking to double up. The {3-Clubs} on the turn gave Hizer some hope but the {j-Spades} ensured Loiacono of a double up.
