It was Sean who limped in to try to trap Menendez and that was exactly what happened as Menendez threw all of his chips into the middle. Sean made the call and we had a showdown!
Menendez: K 7
O'Donnell: A 8
O'Donnell was the one at risk as Menendez had a 2:1 chiplead. The dealer opened up the flop with 7 2 9 , giving O'Donnell a flush draw and Menendez middle pair. The turn gave a 2 , and Menendez had to dodge a lot of cards which could mess it up for him. However, the 7 was not one of them. It did gave a flush, but the full-house is obviously the winning hand here.
We have an Argentinian Winner of The Festival Series!
