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

Aces For Pasqualini


Matthew Pearson opened with a raise to 36,000 before Greg Schaefer popped it up to 90,000 from the cutoff position. Action then passed to Jean Pasqualini in the big blind who re-raised it to 255,000.

Pearson went into the tank and eventually folded (what he later stated was pocket queens), before Schaefer moved all in. Pasqualini called it off.

Schaefer: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Pasqualini: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}

The board ran out {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and Pasqualini collects the big pot to jump to 590,000 with Schaefer down to just 120,000.
