Aguiar's Crazy Eights

Jon Aguiar

It was a bit of a cooler that found Jon Aguiar running his {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} into the {10-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} of Shawn Buchanan, but the last ~110,000 of Aguiar's chips found themselves in the middle with their owner drawing slim. He shut his iPad, gathered his things, and shifted his weight to stand up.

Some of the dealers, such as this one, deal the board cards one at a time, and this life-saving dealer burned and put the {8-Spades} right in the window for Aguiar. The rest of the board ran out {8-Spades} {6-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} {K-Spades}, and Buchanan has been forced to part with a good chunk of his own stack. The two men have similar stacks now, each with a bit over 200,000.

Jonathan Aguiar us 228,000 93,000
Shawn Buchanan ca 205,000 -109,000
