Staples Can't Survive a Three-Outer

• Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Marvin Rettenmaier opened to 12,500 from middle position and Jaime Staples pushed all in for his last 100,000 from the big blind. Rettenmaier asked for a count and then made the call to put Staples at risk.

Marvin Rettenmaier: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}
Jaime Staples: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Staples was in a great position to double up, hoping to avoid an ace. However, the flop of {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} was detrimental, leaving Staples with just one out to stay alive. The turn and river were of no help as the PokerStars Pro headed for the exit.
