Alan Percal Doubles Thru and Cripples James Dempsey: Aces vs. Kings
Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
James Dempsey min-raises from UTG+1 to 8,000, Alan Percal moves all in for 170,000, and Dempsey calls with KK. But Percal turns over AA, and the two players are nearly even in chips.
The board comes 99872, and the pocket aces hold up for Percal to win the pot. The chip stacks are counted down, and Dempsey is left with just four big blinds.
Alan Percal - 360,000 (90 BBs)
James Dempsey - 16,500 (4 BBs)
Percal is one of the two remaining 18-20 year olds in the field competing for the bonus prize -- a customized surfboard. Percal is nearly even with fellow under-21 player Robert Gorodetsky (320,000).
