Event 8: Villacci Doubles Through Vayman

$350 8-Handed Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 18: Blinds 2,500/5,000/500 ante

Joe Villacci took a nice chunk out of Oleg Vayman’s lead in a big post-flop hand.

Villacci opened to 12,500 from late position and Vayman three-bet to 38,000 from the button. Action folded back around the Villacci and he put out a call after some thought.

Villacci then instantly shoved for 107,500 as soon as the dealer spread the Qd5s3d flop to get Vayman talking to himself and Villacci. Vayman was convinced Villacci was holding AQ but grudgingly called the bet. He was close in his read, Villacci tabled KcQc for top pair against Vayman’s second pair As5c.

The 7s turn and 2d locked up the double for Villacci.
