Event 14: Gomez Cracks Aces, Rivera-Padilla Out In 14th

$350 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (FREEZE-OUT)
Level 17: Blinds 2,500/5,000/500 ante

In a spectacular hand, Jorge Gomez tried to steal a hand away from Michael Belkin and picked a very bad time to do it.

Belkin: AhAs
Gomez: Qh4s

Gomez got some of the help he needed with a 4d5h8d flop and the rest came on the turn as the Qc fell. The 2h hit ending the hand and giving Gomez the miracle double-up worth around 110,000 chips.

In the meantime, Jonathan Padilla was outflopped holding A-10 vs. Joe Budd’s 3-2. Budd flopped two pair and Padilla’s all-in move failed sending him out in 14th.

We are now hand-for-hand here in Event 14.
