Cesar Fuentes

Cesar Fuentes opened to 155,000 from under the gun and Francis Margaglione called in the big blind to the [8c][6d][5d] flop. Margaglione checked, Fuentes bet 170,000 and Margaglion check-raised enough to put him all in. Fuentes quickly called and Margaglione was not happy to see the hands.

Margaglione: [8s][4s]
Fuentes: [jd][jc]

Margaglione had top pair plus a gutshot draw against Fuentes over pair and he found the [7h] turn to fill the gap. Fuentes was unable to repeat as champion in this event for a fourth place finish is a fine follow up.

“You got me again Francis,” Fuentes joked as he waited to cash out.

Francis Margaglione – 2,250,000 (38 bb)
