Event 5: Chou Doubles Again

$500 + $60 + $500 NLH Purple Chip Bounty 

On a flop of K♣J♣2, Allen Chou was all-in for 351k and called by Travis Greenawalt.

Allen held A♣4♣ for the nut flush draw.  Travis was way ahead with AK for top/top.  Allen would have to improve to survive.

The turn was the 5 giving Allen more outs with a gutshot to the wheel.

The river 3 completed the wheel for Allen.  He doubled up to over 800k.  Travis was left with about 700k.

Allen's railbirds, including his wife, Borgata tournament regular Patricia Barsanti-Chou, went wild.  "You're a contender now" she told Allen.

With 5 players remaining, the average stack is 912k (57 big blinds).
