Gonzalez Shrinks the Field

ajlamers • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Fabrizio Gonzalez raised to 255,000 in early position and Ole Schemion pushed all in for 805,000 in the small blind. Gonzalez asked for a count and then made the call to put Schemion at risk.

Fabrizio Gonzalez: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Ole Schemion: {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Spades} to give Gonzalez a pair of aces and the lead. The {6-Clubs} on the turn and the {8-Hearts} on the river was no help to Schemion as he was eliminated.

In the very next hand, Gonzalez made it 260,000 from under the gun. James Chen was in the big blind and ripped all in for his last 885,000. Gonzalez made the call again and was in a great position.

Fabrizio Gonzalez: {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
James Chen: {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The board ran out {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Diamonds} giving Gonzalez a queen-high straight. Chen exited the tournament area and another table collapsed.
