Event 12: Monteavarro Triples

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry) 

After seat 1 limped utg, Joanne Monteavarro (cutoff) moved in for her last 65k.  Naz Tyrewala re-raised to 165k straight.  Seat 1 then moved all-in for over half a million.  Naz was a bit distressed by this, but decided to let his hand go (saying later he folded AQ).

Joanne held AQ offsuit and was racing against pocket Jacks.  The board came A A 7 5 K and Joanne tripled up.

(If Naz had made the call with AQ, he would have chopped the main pot with Joanne, but won the side-pot, busting that player and chipping up to nearly 2 million.)
