Event #12: $1,500 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Aces No Good for Lim

• Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Arthur Lim managed to get his entire stack of 91,000 in the middle preflop while holding {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}. Lim was called by Richard Trigg who tabled {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}.

When the flop came out {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{9-Spades} Lim's aces were still a good deal ahead. Trigg picked up a lot more outs, however, when the {8-Spades} turned. The river spelled heartbreak for Lim, as the {10-Spades} fell, giving Trigg the spade flush and the winning hand. Trigg is now right on our chip leader, Nicholas Rampone's heels, sitting with about 620,000.
