Event 1: Rodriguez Sinks Two On River

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 10:  500/1,000/100 ante

Before the blinds went up:

With a flop of 8x6x5x, two short stacks got all their chips in the  middle against Christian Rodriguez (Boynton Beach, FL).

Christian Rodriguez

The player in seat 9 held pocket Jacks, the lady in seat 7 had pocket 9s, and Christian had them both beat with pocket 5s for set.

That all changed with the 7x on the turn, which gave the lady a straight.   Then another 8x came on the river, giving Christian a full boat and sending both opponents packing.

With that pot, Christian chipped up to about 85k.
