Paul Vacchio (Inwood, NJ)
Paul Vacchio open ships 615k and Mike Santoro calls, leaving 330k behind. Greg Glassman reships and has both players covered and prematurely exposes pocket Ks Kd, not realizing Santoro was still to act.
Santoro disgustedly folds AQ face up and says, "I know he (Vacchio) has an ace, I'm drawing to two outs." Santoro's correct as Vacchio tables AJ vs Glassman's kings.
The board runs clean for Santoro who adds more than one million chips to his stack and is now the chip leader with more than 2 million chips
Vacchio is out in 9th place, while Santoro is now the short stack.
