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

Affleck Over Three Million

Matt Affleck leading in a big way

The board read {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} between Hugo Franca and Matt Affleck. Franca had check-raised Affleck on the flop with Affleck making the call. On the turn, Franca checked again to Affleck before Affleck fired 100,000. Franca check-raised again, making it 260,000 to go. Affleck tanked and made the call.

The river completed the board with the {J-Diamonds} and Franca tank-shoved for 486,000. Affleck went into the tank for quite some time. After several minutes passed while ESPN shot the scene, Affleck made the call. Franca mucked his hand to signify that he couldn't win and Affleck tabled the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} for just top pair, top kicker.

Affleck raked in the massive pot and is now over three million in chips.
