Al Gomez

With the clock running down on the day, Al Gomez faced an all in bet for 37,700 from an early position player. He pulled out the calling chips, checked the clock, thought some more, and eventually called.

“Show me pocket eights,” Gomez pleaded.

“Two over,” was the reply he received.

Gomez: 9c9h
Opponent: AcTs

Gomez was flipping for most of his stack and his pair held as the board ran out Kd6h3hQc5d to move him up near 100,000.
