Carlo Arevalo's Story
Carlo Arevalo is among the tables today. Currently he is nursing a below average stack but is looking to grind up a stack and get his first World Series bracelet.
The incredibly friendly Arevalo was willing to share some of his background to PokerNews during the dinner break. He joined the U.S Marine Corp from '03 - '07 at just 19 years old. He was deployed in Iraq during '04 - '05 and served in several major conflicts.
He's a retired project manager and consultant now but his time in the armed forces has taken him across the world to Thailand, Japan and Korea also.
He, like many, would play poker with fellow service men and women and trade commodities while playing cards to pass time and have some fun. He used to swap American cigarettes, disposable camera and beers with British servicemen. Now some almost 20 years later since he joined the Marines, he enjoys playing poker for fun.

Andion In Massive Pot On The River
Alejandro Andion was heads-up against the cutoff on a , the pot already at 70,000.
According to another player at the table, who helpfully filled PokerNews in on the action, apparently after a pre-flop limp from early position, Andion's opponent had bet and Andion three-bet the button. After getting called he continued, was called, then continued again on the turn when checked to. The opponent called again.
This time, on the river his opponent lead into him for 31,000 chips only to have Andion move all in for 99,500 total. The opponent had Andion covered by a few thousand, and after thinking for a couple of minutes if not more, the opponent perhaps begrudgingly let his hand go.
