RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 1C): COME TO JESUS

Level 7 (400/800/800)
Total Entrants: 158

Jesus Hernandez (pictured) limps for 600 in middle position and the player to his left limps along. Joe Becchina in the small blind has other plans, though, and raises to 1,800. Both opponents call.

The flop comes A♦J♠4♦. Becchina checks, and the other players check behind. The flop is the A♣. Becchina checks again, and Hernandez bets 1,600. The middle player folds and Becchina raises to 7,500.

Hernandez acts surprised, but quickly calls. The dealer puts the 9♣ out on the river. Becchina quickly checks and Hernandez turns over A♥7♣ for trip aces. Becchina nods and shows K♠K♥ for aces up.

Jesus Hernandez - 28,800
Joe Becchina - 23,200
