Angel Fernandez Puts Pressure on Joseph Cappello, Eliminates One

Niveau 13 : 1,000/2,000, 300 ante

With one early-position player all in preflop, Angel Fernandez was in the big blind, heads-up against Joseph Cappello on the button. The flop was {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Fernandez checked. Cappello bet 12,000, and Fernandez moved all in. Cappello thought for a while and folded, and Fernandez tabled {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for the nut flush draw with the gutshot straight draw.

The all-in player had {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} for top two pair, and the turn was the {J-Diamonds}, giving Fernandez Broadway. The {5-Spades} river couldn't save his opponent, and Fernandez took the pot and scored the elimination.

"I should have kept you in there," Fernandez said to Cappello after the hand, and Cappello was happy he got out of the way.

All-in player: {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

The {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop was favorable for Magriel. The {9-Diamonds} turn gave his opponent some outs, but Magriel improved to the nut flush on the {3-Clubs} river to eliminate the all-in player.

Magriel is closing in on 100,000 chips.
