Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Ruberto Brushes Out Painter

• Taso 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Tony Ruberto bet 50,000 on a {10-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop from early position, and Aaron Painter struggled with the decision for a bit before picking up his stack of about 60,000 forcefully placing it in the middle. Ruberto called.

Painter: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Ruberto: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

"We need the miracle nine," Painter said.

Someone pointed out that a jack or a club would also be good cards for him.

"Come on, jack of clubs," Painter said. "...Any club."

"Nobody wants to see the red deuce?" Ruberto joked.

The turn was a {6-Diamonds}, eliminating the backdoor outs, and Ruberto got his wish with a {2-Diamonds} on the river.
