Event 16: River Keeps Fondacaro Afloat

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Greg Fondacaro (Sewell, NJ) was standing up with on foot facing the exit doors.

Greg, with his tournament life on the line and all his chips in the middle, was holding A-J of clubs against opponent's 9-9.

Board runs: 6-4-K-8...

Fondacaro is down to six outs, looking for an ace or a jack or his Championship Event is over.

Bang! He sees the Jack of hearts fall on the river, breathes a sigh of relief, and sits back in his chair.

"It was a coin-flip" said Greg who goes from 30,000 to 60,000 on the flip of one card.
