Hermilo Vargas Eliminated in 4th Place ($16,025)

By December 8, 2022No Comments

Blinds: 80,000/160,000

Hermilo “Taxi” Vargas raised to 460,000 under the gun, and action folded to Anh Nguyen in the big blind. He looked at his cards, then announced all in, a bet effectively worth the 5.5 million Vargas had behind.

He shrugged a bit, then dropped chips in to call with [As][Ks]. Nguyen showed [4h][4d], and it was a massive flip for the tournament chip lead. The flop of [7c][7d][5c] gave Vargas some chip outs, but the [3d] turn and [10d] river kept the baby pair in the lead the whole way.

With that pot, Nguyen has a big lead with over 12 million.
