Alfredo Vega Eliminated in 8th Place ($3,410)

Congratulations to Alfredo Vega from Germany who finished 8th in our DeepStack Championship Event #48 $600 PLO $75K GTD winning $3,410.

The action started with Tarek Sleiman raising to 35,000 from under the gun and getting called by Karl Held and Alfredo Vega in middle position. 

The flop fell 5♦ 8♣ 9♥ and Sleiman moved all in for 51,000. Held raised to 273,000. Vega tanked for several minutes before eventually making the call. 

The turn brought the 6♠ and Held announced pot putting Vega all in. Vega instantly called with 165,000 behind. 

Held: 9♠ 9♣ 5♠ 3♣
Vega: Q♠ J♣ T♥ 8♠ 
Sleiman: A♣ A♦ K♣ Q♣

Held had the commanding lead with a set against Sleiman’s overpair and Vega’s straight draw. 

No help would come for either player as the K♠ completed the board giving Held the double knockout and the pot.
