Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Engel Booms to 250K


Over at the table of death, action folded to Brian Rast and he raised. Ari Engel reraised to 16,000 and then the player in the big blind made it 41,000 to go. Rast folded, but Engel clicked it back to 66,000 with 55,000 behind. The big blind reraised all in and Engel tanked. He eventually called with the {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. The big blind held the {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

The flop was {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and both players smacked it. Engel hit top two pair while his opponent held a set of nines. The turn was the {K-Diamonds} and then the river the {A-Hearts}. With the ace on the river, both players made a full house, but Engel had come from behind to win the hand with the better one. He won the pot and doubled to around 250,000 in chips.
