$365 Bounty Event #16 Day 2 1/104
Level 22: 8,000-16,000 / Ante 2,000
Jean-Luc Adam limped in and Jose Menalque checked out of the big blind to see a flop of Ad Ah 9h. Menalque bet 25,000 and Adam called. On the 8h turn, Menalque checked, Adam bet 80,000 and Menalque then moved all in for around 280,000. Adam quickly called and the cards were turned over.
Jose Menalque: 9d 7h
Jean-Luc Adam: 3h 2h
Menalque was praying for another heart, but his wish wasn’t granted as the 3c on the river ended the tournament. Adam reacted with a simple “thank you” before his son on the rail came over to congratulate. Menalque was eliminated in 2nd place for a payday of $3,850 and Adam scooped the WSOP Circuit ring along with $6,240 for his efforts.
