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

Perez Hits an Ace

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Stefan Martin opened up the action with a 22,000 raise. Players folded around to Christopher Perez when he immediately went all in for 77,000. Martin called and flipped up {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. Perez showed {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}.

The flop wasn't helpful for Perez when it came out {3-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}, but the turn put Perez ahead when the {a-Spades} hit. The {j-Clubs} came up on the river and Perez increased his chip stack to a healthy 154,000.
