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

Aces Mean Chips for Melvin


Bill Melvin opened for 100,000 from under the gun. Matt Affleck called from the cutoff seat. Then Ian Gordon made it 380,000 from the button.

The blinds got out, then Melvin reraised to 1.38 million, leaving himself a little under 600,000 behind. Affleck folded, and Gordon -- who had Melvin covered -- reshoved all in. Melvin quickly called with his remaining chips.

Melvin {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Gordon {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

The dealer delivered the five community cards as follows: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Melvin chips way up to 4.85 million, while Gordon falls to just 300,000.
