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

Nagata Stays Alive

• Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Todd Nagata, from Las Vegas, pushed all in under the gun for his last 9,500 chips. Action folded all the way around to Stefan Martin in the big blind who called and flipped up {8-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Nagata turned up {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {q-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} on the flop, putting Martin ahead with a pair of sixes. Nagata eventually caught up on the turn and river when he caught two diamonds. The {7-Diamonds} on the turn and the {3-Diamonds} on the river.

Nagata now sits with around 20,000.
