Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Leong Cracks Aces to Scoop a Monster Pot

ajlamers • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

It was just the two blinds left in the hand on the river with the board reading {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. There was already over 80,000 in the middle in what seemed to be an inflated pot.

Leong led out for a bet of 36,500 and the action was on Sansone who indicated he was holding pocket aces. He thought for a couple of minutes, trying to get a read on Leong but he gave nothing away. Sansone eventually called and Leong flipped over {j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for a full house on a double-paired board. Sansone flashed {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} but sent a healthy amount of chips across the table.
