O’Donnell Cracks Menendez’s Rockets

Main Event Day 3
Level 33: 1,000,000/2,000,000 (2,000,000)
Entries: 2/609

The momentum is now all with Sean O'Donnell. O'Donnell limped from the button with J 8 before Ignacio Menendez opted to slow play his A A with a check-back from the big blind.

Menendez check-raised a bet by O'Donnell from 3 million to 10 million. O'Donnell jammed for 30 million and needed some help after Menendez called.

The 5 turn followed by the 2 river improved O'Donnell to a flush to crack Menendez's aces and was in the chip lead after the hand instead of hitting the rail.

Sean O'Donnell - 85 million
Ignacio Menendez - 37 million
