Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Ugly River Busts Junc

Radu Junc, one of the few deaf players to ever play in a WSOP event has been eliminated from the tournament in what can only be called an "ugly" hand.

After a flop of {10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}, Junc ended up all in against Ken Griffin for a very large pot. Junc's {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} was way ahead of Griffin's {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. The turn brought an insignificant {4-Clubs} but then the river card brought the devastating {6-Hearts} giving Griffin trip sixes and the win.

Junc and his rail all were shocked at the unfortunate turn of events and he sadly headed to the payout table but his deep run in this event is still very impressive and we're sure to see more great things from him in the future.

After the hand, Griffin's stack was bumped to one of our chipleaders with around 603,000.
