Event 16: "Wicked" Big Flip for Reilly

Level 9
Blinds 300/600/100
Players Remaining: 48
Timmy Big Time

Action started with a raise to 1,800 from a player under the gun who was then three-bet by a player in middle position to 3,200. Action folded around to Tim "Wicked617" Reilly in the small blind who put in a four-bet to 11,000. The player under the gun thought about it for a few moments but eventually released his hand into the muck and action was back on the player in middle position. After counting down his stack once or twice he slid forward a pile of orange chips and announced all in. Reilly snap called and nodded his head when he saw his opponents [Qc][Qd]. He tabled [As][Kh] and we were off to the races.

The board ran out [9s][10s][Kd][8s][5c] and much to the dismay of his opponent, Reilly would rake in the pot and is now sitting on over 65,000.

15 minutes remain in the 9th level and players will be on a 1 hour dinner break at the completion of this level.

"I didn't even know this tournament was going on. I came down for the week to play the $2,700 Main Event and noticed this tournament yesterday morning. I've never played six-max live before but I used to love playing it online so I figured I'd take a shot."

Ferreira: [Kc][Ks]
D'Agostino: [Ad][Js]

D'Agostino looked destined for a double up when the dealer spread the [3s][As][7h] flop and was still ahead on the [7c] turn. Ferriera threw his hands up in frustration but that would quickly turn into a fist pump when he saw the [Kh] spike on the river. D'Agostino will take home $2,476 for his 5th place finish.

"I'm probably going to use the rest of this time" said Wagner as both of his table mates told him to take as much time as needed.
