Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Alexander the Great

Alex Jacob on Day 3

We haven't heard too much from Alex Jacob this year, but despite his lower-than-usual profile (the hair certainly has less volume this year), he's deep in this Main Event and the recent recipient of a double through.

With the flop reading {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, Jacob got it all in with {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} in the big blind, only to be met by a hand he didn't want to see: {A-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. But despite the possibility of pain, the {K-Spades} turn and {3-Spades} were both safe, and Jacob was rewarded with a newly refurbished stack of 162,000.
