Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Alex Alashkar Becomes a Top Stack

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

A player from middle position opened the hand with a raise to 2,300. Alex Alashkar, who had one of the largest stacks at the table already, reraised all in. The big blind followed suit and shipped in his last 9,000 chips. The initial raiser folded and the hands were turned up.

Alashkar: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Opponent: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

The table had a mini roar when they saw that the opponent hit a set of fives but quieted as they realized it was accompanied with a jack. The final board was {5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{a-Spades} and Alashkar has moved to one of the top spots on the leader board with 63,000.
