Event 20: Kaelaine's Buddy

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (6-Max)

When this tournament started Kaelaine was pulled aside by Andy Santiago guaranteed victory.
So far so good as he's up to 135k.

On a board of 2 Q J♣ A 10♣

Santiago bets 20k into a 35k pot, leaving 80k behind. His opponent folds and Santiago is one of the bigger stacks in the room. After the hand Santiago stands up quickly and pulls me aside,
"I told Kaelaine I'm going to do it, let her know I have chips."

Dinner break is one hour away as players break again at 7:30.
