Sheldon Gross, Day 2 Level 19

The hand for hand portion of the tournament is complete and the players are now in the money. Results will be posted for each spot on the payscale.

Sheldon Gross made a great call to do multiple short-stacks around the room a favor. With the board reading 5♦6♥8♠7♦8♦ and ~180k in the middle, Gross faced a shove on the river for 257k from James Allie. Gross had over 1M in his stack to begin the hand and wouldn’t be at risk. He took his time before announcing call and heard some immediate good news when his opponent announced “Two Pair.” Gross tabled A♥8♣ for trips which would beat the K♠7♠ from Allie.
