Event 16: Ace - King - Thrice

$260 + $40 Deep Stack NL

AK three times in a row? A good thing or a bad thing?

For Thomas Rodriguez it meant one double up, one 40K knock-out, then finally a dusting off of 90,000 to Mike Melena who woke up with pocket Aces.

Rodriguez and Melena have been sitting next to each other at the same table since the start of this Event at 11am.

"I got my entertainment times 2" said Melena who was laughing at Rodriguez' comic relief.

Thomas showed a sweet 6-3 offsuit bluff while I was watching, but a few hands later his 70,000 stack suffered termination.

Q-J of clubs couldn't hit a brick wall and Opponent's 7-7 held up.

Rodriguez hit the rail but told me he was looking forward to trying again tomorrow.
