Barela Takes a Hit

• Taso 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Michael Barela raised to 16,000 from the cutoff and Daniel Quach called from the button. The small and big blind folded and the two players took a flop, which came {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. Barela pushed all in and Quach quickly called for his remaining 114,000.

Barela: {Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Quach: {K-Clubs}{J-Spades}

Quach's flopped straight held up as the meaningless {4-Hearts} and {4-Spades} hit the turn and river. Barela is currently sitting just above 200,000.
