Biggest Pot of the Tournament: Daniel Alaei Doubles Through Bryan Devonshire
Level 14: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante
After a flop of AA6, Daniel Alaei checks the small blind, Bryan Devonshire bets 18,500 from the cutoff, Alaei check-raises to 42,000, and Devonshire reraises to 108,500. Alaei calls.
The turn card is the 4, and Alaei checks again. Devonshire bets 161,000, and Alaei check-raises all in for 400,500. Devonshire calls with AQ for trip aces. But Alaei shows AK for trip aces with a higher kicker, and Devonshire needs a queen on the river to win or the board to pair to chop.
The river card is the 10, and Daniel Alaei wins the pot.
The chip stacks are counted down, and Devonshire has Alaei covered by just 25,000. It's the biggest pot of the tournament to this point, but Devonshire just shakes his head and says there wasn't much he could do in that situation.
Daniel Alaei - 1,050,000
Bryan Devonshire - 25,000
