Alcides Gomez

After a flop of 9d7d5d, Alcides Gomez got it all in from the small blind for 800,000 with 9s7s (top two pair), and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the AsAc of Salvatore Sollecito, who was under the gun.

The turn card was the Qh, the river card was the Qd, and the two queens on the board counterfeited Gomez’s two pair. Sollecito won the pot with a higher two pair, aces and queens, to eliminate Gomez in ninth place.

Salvatore Sollecito  –  4,950,000  (66 bb)
Alcides Gomez  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($2,097)

With eight players remaining, the average chip stack is about 2,340,000 (31 big blinds), and the next player to bust will receive $2,995.
