Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Somerville Succeeds

While roaming around the tournament we found Jason Somerville facing an all in bet for about 22,500. His opponent Darryl Ronconi put Somerville all in with a {8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{J-Spades}{6-Spades} board spread. Somerville took his time making his decision before eventually calling. Cards were tabled and Somerville was ahead, but not by much.

Somerville: {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}
Ronconi: {9-Spades}{10-Spades}

Somerville was going to need to dodge any spade, any seven, and any queen. With a {10-} falling on the river Somerville was awarded the pot as his pair of jacks were the best.
