Championship Event: Sponaugle Doubles Through Garcia

$1,500 + $100 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event (Re-Entry)

Blinds: 12k/24k/4k ante: 5 players remaining, 1.2 million avg (50 bb)

Cord Garcia opened from the small blind to 50K and Ryan Sponaugle moved all in from the big blind. Garcia made the call with a small pair – 5’s, probably hoping he was racing… but he was dominated by the 6’s that Ryan held. The flop gave Sponaugle a set but it did give Garcia an inside straight draw as it came 6h3s2h. The turn was the Qh and the river gave Garcia a meaningless set… the 5d. Ryan is up to almost 900K after the hand and Cord is down to 725K.
