Aaron Valencia

Aaron Valencia came back from break with a healthy lead but the result was still up in the air. With the stacks still deep, a long night grind was possible.

Until both hit a big hand.

The board was out to the turn reading ThTc2cJd and Valencia checked. Duarte bet 400,000 from his button and Valencia called. The river was 5h, Duarte bet and Valencia announced all in. Duarte checked to make sure he heard correctly and called at risk for 4,350,000.

Valencia tabled 5c5s for the rivered full house and Duarte flipped over KdTd. He flopped trip tens but the river five ended his tournament in second place for $35,480 while Valencia earned $54,095 for the win.

1st: Aaron Velancia – $54,095
