RG TULSA Main Event (Day 2): AMATO DOUBLES

Level 17 (4000/8000/8000)
Total Entries: 385
Players Remaining: 30
Chip Average: 256,667

Drew Amato (pictured) got all his chips in the middle preflop against Cheryl Bailey and the hands were turned up.

Amato - A♥J♠
Bailey - T♥T♣

Bailey is ahead but has to hold or be left with less than three big blinds. The flop brings bad news for Bailey when it comes A♠7♣2♠. The A♣ on the turn improves Amato to three-of-a-kind but has little affect on the outcome of the hand. Bailey needs one of the remaining tens, but neither arrive on the Q♦ river.

Amato - 208,000
Bailey - 21,000

A few hands later, Bailey was eliminated in 31st place for $1,502 when her 5♦5♣ couldn't hold against Blair Hinkle's J♠T♣.
