Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

McNiff's Magnificent Finish

In the final hand of the night over on table 352, the action folded to Evan McNiff who raised all-in for 150,000 from the hijack position. The cutoff, button and small blind folded, but then Holley called from the big blind blind and the cards were tabled:

McNiff: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Holley: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

BOOOOOOOM! The flop of {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} wiped out any and all chances of Holley taking McNiff out, and after the dealer completed the board with the turn of the {A-Hearts} and the river {5-Clubs}, McNiff sunk into his chair, more in relief than excitement.

McNiff will bag up 317,000 for the night, while Holley takes 931,000 into tomorrow's Day 5.
