Event 1: Summer Cooler

$350 + $50 Deep Stack NL (Re-Entry)

Fondacaro & Estevez

While temps are expected to hit 90 degrees today in Atlantic City, there's a deep freeze in the tournament area of the Poker Room. "Cooler of the day," says one player who sees pocket aces barely hold against pocket kings.

Julio Estevez (Hackensack, NJ) and Greg Fondacaro (Sewell, NJ) are all in after the flop of 10 3♠ 6.

Estevez: K K♠
Fondacaro: A♠ A♣

Fondacaro is at risk for his last 18k.

Turn: K♣ (Estevez set of kings as the table lets out a short "ohhhh!")

River: A (Set of aces, quickly leads to a long, "ooooohhhhhh!")

The river saves the day for Fondacaro who says, "hey I had the best hand," who makes no apologies for winning the hand. Estevez is in good spirits considering he lost about half his stack and is down to 20k.

Level 4 (100/200) continues.
