Miracle Chop for Macedo

KaleGozer • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante
Thiago Macedo

In the final hand before the break, Thiago Macedo was all in for his final few big blinds and called by initial raiser Matt Vengrin, as well as Brian Hastings in the small blind.

The flop was {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Hastings check-folded when Vengrin reached for chips.

Thiago Macedo: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Matt Vengrin: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

Macedo was drawing all but dead against Vengrin's flopped boat but caught the {7-Spades} and {5-Hearts} for a backdoor low hand to snatch half of the pot away to survive.
