Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Aguiar Sends Saul Packing

Jonathan Aguiar raised in middle position to 1,600, and Kevin Saul put in a three bet to 4,000. Aguiar made the call, and the flop came down {j-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Aguiar checked to Saul, who fired out a pot sized bet. Aguiar responded by moving all in, and Saul made the call. The cards were tabled, and Saul was virtually drawing dead.

Aguiar: {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Saul: {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

Aguiar flopped gin, getting top pair and a flush draw, while Saul was drawing to runner runner, with his baby flush draw being no good. He got part of it on the turn, the {6-Diamonds}, but the {q-Spades} on the river didn't complete the miracle suckout. With that hand, Aguiar jumps up to nearly 58,000, while Saul is heading home.
