Jishant Sapra, chip leader coming into Day 3, suffered a painful exit. He doubled the blind to 1M from the under-the-gun position, and the action was folded twice to Morgan Aceto.
Aceto, who had announced before that he would bluff every time Sapra would get involved, shoved all-in, covering him by a little. Sapra didn’t wait too long before making the call.
Sapra needed to fade all four 5s to survive and reclaim his stranglehold on the table. Fate, however, had it otherwise, and Aceto took the pot and a monster lead, cheering the gutshot and declaring that a promise is a promise.
Sapra endured a terrible beat and some trash talk for dessert, but he nevertheless walks home with $28,000 for his 5th place. He walked away in a flash, but came back to the table a few hands later to shake all hands. Great sport, well done sir!
