Main Event

A Palacios in the Sun


In early position, Casey Kastle made it 12,500 to go, and Ruben Visser flatted in the hijack seat. From the big blind, Bolivar Palacios squeezed his last ~100,000 into the middle. Kastle re-shoved to isolate, and Visser ducked out of the way to let Palacios go heads up for his tournament life.

Kastle: {9-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}
Palacios: {10-Clubs} {10-Spades}

Palacios was in good shape, but his big lead was short-lived. The {Q-Hearts} {9-Spades} {5-Diamonds} flop put him in a hole he could not crawl out of, and the turn {3-Hearts} and river {Q-Clubs} has sent him off to the beach with a little profit in his pockets.
