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

Jerry's Payne is Parras' Gain

Eduardo Parras

Jerry Payne raised to 200,000 to start the action, and Theo Jorgensen reraised to 550,000 in position. From the big blind, Eduardo Parras reraised all in for 2.81 million total. Payne re-shoved over the top, and Jorgensen ducked out of the way. With Parras at risk, the cards were on their backs:

Parras: {Q-Clubs} {Q-Hearts}
Payne: {A-Spades} {K-Hearts}

Aaaaaand they're off! The flop came {J-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {7-Clubs} as Parras' queens stormed out to a big lead. The two men turned the corner with the safe {3-Spades}, and the {5-Hearts} led Parras' horse down the home stretch and across the line victorious. He takes down that race and pulls in the double up, vaulting his stack up to about 6.3 million.

Payne is left with about 1.35 million.
