Aguiar Steps into Aces
Jonathan Aguiar is one of those recently eliminated players, and we had just walked up when it happened. Owais Ahmed opened to 1,475 under the gun, and Jonathan Aguiar three-bet shoved for about 15,600 from the button. In the small blind, Chris Wallace like what he saw enough to reraise all in over the top. Ahmed folded quickly, and the news was not good for the at-risk Aguiar.
There was no help on board for either player as it came to send Aguiar off to the exit. As he left, Ahmed made the comment that he was going to call with king-jack, and Aguiar seemed a mix of surprised, amused, and upset at the news.
Wallace is up to about 42,000 now.
