Event #40: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Jones Drops One

• Taso 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

We walked up to the table to see Aaron Jones and Tam Troung heads up on the turn, with the board showing {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. There was about 14,000 in the middle, and Jones fired out a bet of 6,900. Troung tanked for a couple of minutes before calling, and the {8-Spades} hit the river. Jones checked after a few moments of though, and Truong quickly checked behind. Jones showed {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a eights and sixes, and he was showed {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a better two pair by Truong.

Despite losing that hand, it's been a good day for Jones so far. Jones had a good stack for most of the day yesterday, before getting knocked down to just 8,600 at the end of the night. However, he had it up to 30,000 before that hand, and is still doing okay with 23,000.

Tam Truong au 70,000 10,000
Aaron Jones us 23,000 -42,000
