Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Matacale Folds

[user38873] • Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

We noticed a large pot going on between Thomas Matacale and Gary La Duca, the latter being one of the bigger stacks throughout Day 1. The board lay until the {3-Spades}{2-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} turn and La Duca moved all in for 28,000. Matacale tanked and even said "sorry guys" to the rest of the table for taking his time of consideration. He eventually folded {A-Spades}{K-Spades} and La Duca said he had {A-}{Q-} in that spot.

Nonetheless, Matacale has already tripled his starting stack from an hour ago.
