Alexandre Gomes Wins a Huge Pot -- Chipleader?
Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante
With the final board showing AQ743, the big blind checks, Alex Gomes bets 15,000 from middle position, and the cutoff moves all in. The big blind tanks for more than a minute before he folds, and Gomes calls with 65 -- the nuts, a seven-high straight. The cutoff doesn't notice the straight right away, turning over his 74 (two pair) thinking it's good. It's not.
Alex Gomes eliminates the other player to win a huge pot, and he moves to the top of the chip counts with about 94,000.
