Pollak Can't Catch a Card

• Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

The action folded to Benjamin Pollak on the button who moved all in for his last 275,000 chips. Luis Faria asked for a count from the small blind and made the call.

Luis Faria: {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Benjamin Pollak: {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Pollak had two live cards to work with but the flop of {8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} left Faria in the lead with his ace-high. The {10-Hearts} on the turn gave Pollak a straight draw as well but the {3-Spades} on the river bricked off, sending him to the payout desk.
