Carlos Avalos (Lakeridge, VA)
Crazy hand ends with Carlos Avalos needing a non-heart 4 for the win and he hits it.
Opponent jams a board of 5♣6♥9♥5♥ causing Carlos to go deep freeze.
It would cost him 103,900 and he had another 60,000 behind.
Finally Carlos called. Opponent tabled A♥6♣ for the pair and the nut flush draw.
Carlos showed 4♥4♦ and was not happy he was so far behind.
Carlos' hearts were dead and he needed a miracle 4. Boom - just like that he got the 4♠.
The kid he felted was furious. He stood up and said Carlos had been doing that to him all day. He had him dominated again and again lost - this time for his entire tournament. Not gonna lie, it was hard to watch...but great for the blog.
We're going hand for hand as 31 players remain.
One away from the money people.
