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

Fernandez Pops Main Event Cherry


We walked over to the table as Jacobo Fernandez had just fired a bet of 150,000 into a pot worth a couple hundred thousand chips and the board reading {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. His opponent was Jean Pasqualini and he let it go to give Fernandez the pot.

Fernandez has two cashes already this year. This is also his first cash in the WSOP Main Event, although he's been a very solid WSOP competitor for the past few years. Back in 2007, he cashed twice. In 2008, Fernandez cashed in seven WSOP events. In 2009, he cashed three times. Out of those years, 2008 was his best. He final tabled three WSOP events worth $136,644, $238,781 and $222,659. That's one heck of a WSOP.

Even though it's only his first cash in the Main Event, Fernandez has plenty of WSOP experience and is certainly doing his best to make the most of it.
