Avoiding a Chop

$300 + 50 NLH

Danny Doin' Alright

Down to 19, play is now hand-for-hand and Anthony Donato, Jr. (Cedarville, NJ) pulls a rabbit out of a hat. He's all in for his last 6,700 and is called by Danny Guerin (Long Island, NY) on the button; the big blind calls as well.

The two players with "live" hands check it down on a board of J 9 9 A J.

Guerin shows A 8, for two pairs, aces and nines. Donato briefly hesitates and reveals A J for the winning full house. The river jack gives Donato much needed life as he and Donato were poised to chop the pot.

A few hands later Donato has pocket aces and doubles again through Guerin.

Donato's no longer the short stack and Guerin continues to lead the tournament with 300k.

Level 14 (1,500/3k/400 ante) is underway.
