$350 + $50 Deepstack NL Hold'em ($100,000 Guarantee)
On a board of 10♦ A♥ 9♦ K♣, Paul Vacchio (Inwood, NY) moves all in for 169k and his opponent calls.
Vacchio: J♠ 9♣ (two outs to win hand 9♥ 9♠, 7% chance to chop)
Opponent: A♦ J♦ (87% favorite to win hand)
Vacchio hits the two-outer and barely has his opponent covered.
"I'm so blessed," says Vacchio who is thrilled to make the money after finishing in third place for $6,181 in the Event 5 Deepstack Semi-Turbo.
Tournament officials are racing off the 500 (purple) chips and players are now bagging and tagging for the night.
