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

Big Bounce for Boudreau


Some excitement over on the main feature table just now -- a three-way all-in situation involving Kevin Boudreau, Eric Capra, and Filippo Candio.

The hand started with Boudreau open-pushing all in for his last 170,000 from middle position, then Capra called from the blinds. Candio then reraised over the top with his total stack of 460,000, and Capra -- whom Candio had covered -- made the call.

Capra {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Candio {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Boudreau {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

Boudreau stood excitedly, bouncing on his heels in anticipation. "Hey, Kevin! Run it twice!" yelled a friend of his from the stands.

As the laughter died down, the dealer began dealing the one and only set of community cards we'd have here. The flop came a dramatic {J-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, and the crowd roared. Boudreau still had the lead, and would keep it through the {2-Spades} turn and {8-Spades} river.

Boudreau more than triples to 540,000, Candio won the side pot and stays about where he was with 450,000, and Capra hit the rail.
