Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Mazzawi Triples

• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

We get to the table and there were three players in the hand with Christopher Mazzawi at risk and 367,000 in the pot. The flop came {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Jorden Fox checked. Darwin Giles moved all in for his last 149,000 and Fox folded. Giles took back his chips and turned over {K-}{Q-} for top pair. Mazzawi also had top pair but his kicker was better as he held {A-}{K-}.

The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Mazzawi pleaded with the dealer to let his hand hold up. The river was the {3-Hearts} and Mazzawi let out a loud "yea" as he scored the triple-up.

"He saved you," said Fox, who said he had the {A-Hearts} which would have hit the nut flush.
