When last we saw Al Sanchez, he was the Day 2 chipleader in the 1,406-entry Event 1, finishing 6th for a $14,742 score.
He is back in the Monster Stack and once again building his own personal monster stack.
I showed up to see a bet to 3,200 from Connor Henderson, a call from another player, then Sanchez 3-bets to 15,000 on the flop.
Henderson pauses for about 20 seconds, then moves all in for the remaining 91,700 of his chips. The second player takes almost three minutes before folding.
Sanchez asks for a count - Sanchez has 125,000 behind - and barely pauses after hearing the number before announcing a call.
Henderson shows for TopTwo
Sanchez shows - for Bottom Set.
The board runs out 4-A and Henderson is eliminated, with Sanchez moving to the chiplead with 232,000.
