Adria Balaguer opened the action with an under-the-gun raise to 100,000. Around in the big blind, Gregg Wilkinson three-bet shoved for just less than 800,000. Balaguer had just bluffed off a big chunk of his stack, so he barely had the shover covered by that point. He paused for just a bit to make sure, then called with a chance at the knockout.
The flop kept things interesting for the next two streets as Wilkinson flopped an open-ender. The turn was the blank , and he had one card to find an out. He could not, though. The was the last card off the deck, and Balaguer ends with trip jacks and the rest of Wilkinson's chips.
That's the end of Wilkinson's day, and he'll take home $128,441 for his work this weekend. That's not too bad for a $1,500 investment.
