Quad Aces Earns Championship Ticket

Mega Satellite

Thompson & Gibbons
Thompson & Gibbons

Two more players punch their tickets into the Championship Event and Joe Gibbons (Tampa, Fl) does it in style with quad Aces on the final hand.

Gibbons and his opponent are all in on the turn after seeing three Aces on the flop.  The player knocked out in third place earns $700, while Gibbons and Ben Thompson (Lakeland, FL) earn entry into the $1 Million Guaranteed Championship (June 12-18).

“What about high-hand,” laughs Gibbons who knows those promotions are only for cash games.

Gibbons quickly jumps into Flight F, while Thompson has already bagged 103k and is safely on to Sunday’s Day 2. Both are glad to have their Championship seats.
