Congratulations to Orlando Barrera from Las Vegas, NV who placed 9th in our DeepStack Extravaganza IV Event #43 $400 NLH DoubleStack $100K GTD winning $2,438.
Barrera went all-in preflop with a strong K♦ A♥ which was no match for Rajesh Goyal’s pocket Aces. Goyal is now our chip leader.
Going into the dinner break, the chip counts for the remaining nine players are as follows:
David Chavez; 1.74 million
Ratesh Goyal: 1.45 million
Player in seat #4 (name withheld): 1.295 million

Right off the bat we had some excitement when short-stacked Chris Shebat went all in with his pocket tens. He was snap called by David Chavez who held pocket threes. A ten on the flop was enough to enable Shebat to double up his 12,900 chip stack.
