Event 14: Jorge Gomez Eliminated In 9th Place ($778)

$350 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (FREEZE-OUT)
Level 18: Blinds 3,000/6,000/1,000 ante

A stunning hand for Jorge Gomez has set one of the biggest stacks to the rail.

Jorge Gomez and Vincent Mallia faced a board of 9sTs7sJh.  Mallia shoved his massive stack in and Gomez instantly called.

Gomez: 8s8s
Mallia: AhJs

Mallia needed some help against Gomez’s straight and got it as the As popped up on the river giving Mallia the bigger flush. Mallia barely had Gomez’s 140k remaining stack covered and Gomez had to walk away from the table. Gomez picks up $778 for the 9th place finish.
