Event 5C: Hernandez Triples Up

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

End of Level 6:  Blinds 150/300/25 ante

Players in Flight C are on a break at the end of level 6.

Jorge Hernandez

Just before the end of the level, three players were all-in pre-flop.  Jorge Hernandez held AQ, seat 5 was ahead with pocket Kings, and seat 2 had pocket 7s.

The board ran out A T T 6 3 and Jorge caught an Ace to triple up.  Seat 5 won a small side pot, and seat 2 was left short-stacked, but no one busted out.

Jorge chipped up to just over 20k, back where he started.  He owns a mechanic shop and lives here in Hollywood, but is originally from Cuba.  He’s been in the US for about 20 years.
