Event 18: Outstanding Call, Rough Result

$1,650 Purple Chip Bounty No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 9:  Blinds 300/600/75 ante

On a board of 8cAd4s6c, Patrick Peduto pushed in his remaining 16,200 into the middle against Alex Gorelik.  Gorelik went into the tank taking his time to make his decision.

After a couple minutes, Gorelik decided to make the tough call.  It turned out his instincts were spot on.

Peduto: QdQs
Gorelik: AcJh

Gorelik led the way with his aces and was looking good to eliminate Peduto and pick up his bounty until…

Qc on the river.

Despite the great read, Gorelik lost the hand and Peduto doubled up.

We roll on tonight with 23 players still in looking for the $34,351 first place money.
