Dornelesneto Wins Biggest Pot of Tournament With Ace High

• Lygis 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Wow. Wow. Wow.

We just saw what can only be described as a world class call by Joao Dornelesneto to give him the chip lead as we approach the final 100 players in this event. The table caught our attention when we saw at least 120,000 already in the middle on a board that showed {5-Spades}{3-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Dornelesneto's opponent moved all in for the rest of his 110,000, which put Dornelesneto and his stack of 72,700 to the test. Dornelesneto thought for quite some time, and eventually, he announced "I call."

His opponent said "Nice call. Queen high." Dornelesneto rolled over just {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for ace high and maybe of the players at the table gasped in awe at the sight of his hand, before congratulating him on such a sick call. His opponent's cards had to be tabled, {q-Spades}{j-Spades}, and he too had nothing but praises for Dornelesneto , saying "good call man." After taking down that ginormous pot, Dornelesneto is our new chip leader, with 280,000!
