The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{6-Spades} and Campelo lead out for 300,000. Jaffe called, and both the turn, the {8-Clubs}, and river, the {A-Clubs}, were checked.

Jaffe showed a five, but lost against Campelo's {Q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}.

Campelo Doesn't Pull The Trigger

Posted 2012-07-04 GMT-6

Will Jaffe raised to 320,000 and Luis Campelo three-bet to 820,000. Jaffe gave it some thought and moved all in for just 2,150,000. Campelo tanked for about 45 seconds, but he decided to let it go.

It was so close to being over. Will Jaffe was just one card away from winning his first World Series of Poker bracelet, but Luis Campelo pulled off a miracle on the river.

Will Jaffe raised to 320,000 from the small blind, and Luis Campelo moved all in for 2,750,000. Jaffe called right away.

Will Jaffe {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Luis Campelo {K-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The flop brought out {a-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and Jaffe took a commanding lead. Campelo needed to catch a king or a deuce, but the turn was the {Q-Spades} taking away some of his outs. The Brazilian needed one of the two remaining deuces in the deck, and the Amazon Room exploded when the river brought out the {2-Clubs}.

"Vamos Luis!!" a group of around 20 Brazilians shouted from the rail cheering their friend on. The chanting and cheering continues as Campelo has taken the chip lead.
