“I used my one-time on the river,” says Alex Bello (Miami, FL) who is now well above average with 200k after starting the day with 51k (21 bb).

Bello says he was all in on a board of 8-7-X and “in big trouble,” with 9-5 against his opponent’s pocket Jacks.

After a brick on the turn, Bello’s one-time comes through with a 6 on 5th street for the 9-high straight.

Bello is a Hard Rock regular and looking his third career recorded live tournament cash. Players are falling fast and we’re approaching the bubble and hand-for-hand play.
