Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Jacks Lead to Palacios' Destruction

Bolivar Palacios

Bolivar Palacios raised to 110,000 from middle position and action folded to James Page in the small blind. He thought for a brief moment before three-betting to 285,000. The big blind got out of the way and Palacios moved all in for 1.15 million. Page made the call and the cards were turned up.

Page: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Palacios: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}

Palacios was ahead, though he needed to sweat the two overs of Page. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't do it on the {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop. Suddenly Palacios needed to catch a jack to keep his Main Event hopes alive. The dealer burned and turned the {7-Diamonds}, which changed nothing.

It was down to the river for Palacios. The table was silent as the dealer put out the {6-Hearts}. Palacios was eliminated from the tournament while Page chipped up to 3.775 million.
