Earl Gallegos

The final 26 players have returned today to play down to a winner (or at least down to a deal), and the action got underway at 3:00 pm as scheduled.

About five minutes into the action, Henry Fermin raised from middle position to 350,000, Earl Gallegos moved all in from the hijack for 1,325,000, and Fermin called with AhJs.

Gallegos turned over AsQd, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came KcQc2s5h4c, and Fermin flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Gallegos won the pot with a flopped pair of queens to double up in chips.

Earl Gallegos  –  3,025,000  (20 bb)

With 26 players remaining from a field of 6,134, the average chip stack is about 4,725,000 (32 big blinds). The field is in the money, and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $6,075 each.
