Event 16: Aces No Good

$300 + $50 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max Deep Stack Turbo

Blinds: 3k/6k/1k

There have been stories all day about Aces going down in flames but a tough one just happened just before the remaining eight players took a quick 5-minute break.

Hero picked up Aces for the second time in a short orbit and the second time was up against ThTc for a chance to form the unofficial final table and money bubble. Everything was clean until the Td spiked the river to save The Villain for the time being.

Update: On the first hand after the break, he once again picked up Aces and was up against pocket 9’s. “No pictures this time!” It still didn’t stop the bad beat as the deal flopped an Ace followed by running cards to spread a wheel for the chopped pot.
