Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Money Money Maria

Maria Ho enjoys that triple!

Thomas Ross entered the pot with a raise to 52,000 only to have Markus Gonsalves three-bet to 151,000. With the action on the short-stacked Maria Ho, she pushed from the small blind for her last 122,000 before Ross iso-shoved all in. Gonsalves made the call for his near half a million as three sets of cards were tabled.

Ross: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Gonsalves: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Ho: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

With Ho in great shape to survive, her rail would bellow with excitement when the board was spread {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to ensure her triple to nearly 400,000.
