Barela Keeps His Stack Growing

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Michael Barela knocked out Alex Alashkar who was once the chip leader. Action started when Alashkar raised to 15,000. Christopher Perez called and Barela re-raised to 60,000. Alashkar quickly moved all in for his remaining 84,000 chips. Perez folded and Barela called the additional 24,000.

Alashkar: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Barela: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Barela's pocket pair held up to score the knockout.
