Event 8: Simon Cracks Aces

$560 Buy-In Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 37: 250k/500k/50k ante

There is little doubt who has the biggest rail in the room. Derrick Simon has friends and family stacked as close as they can get to the table. They let their presence be known to everyone when Simon found a big double.

He opened to 1,400,000 and Riley Fuller three-bet nearly enough to put him all-in. Simon laughed before putting all his chips in the middle with 5s5h, then the rail moaned when Fuller tabled AhAc. The crowed started yelling for a Five and the dealer put one right in the window when it came KhTd5d.

Fuller was unable to catch up with the Qs turn or 3d river to give Simon’s fans a reason to yell some more.
