Roman Papacek Eliminated With Snowmen and Gets an Apology

Jaxon • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Everyone folded until Anton Afanasyev opened up for 40,000 from the button. Roman Papacek went all in for less than 10 big blinds and Afanasyev called.

Afanasyev: {j-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}
Papacek: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

Papacek's snowmen were ahead on the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} flop despite that it opened up a handful of outs to a straight for Afanasyev on the turn and river. The {7-Hearts} on the turn kept Papacek ahead, however, the {10-Spades} completed the board on the river giving Afanasyev a straight and sending Papacek out of the tournament in 39th place.

After the hand, Afanasyev was apologizing to his opponent, however, Papacek's fate might have been sealed even if Afanasyev didn't open up the pot. The player in the big blind shared he would have gotten it in if Afanasyev didn't open up and was holding a king.
