Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Because Seven Ate Nine

A few minutes ago we heard a loud racket of commotion coming from table #440. Apparently Adria Balaguer had gotten all in and called by a player. Balaguer held {8-}{8-} while his opponent possessed {7-}{7-}, a third player who folded said he mucked {9-}{9-}, which is good for Balaguer because the flop fell {8-}{9-}{X-}. After that the pair of sevens never stood a chance and Balaguer doubled up.
