Event 2: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Dan Smith (17th) and Nicolas Verkaik (16th) Eliminated ($18,890)


Kwinsee Khoa Tran just moved all-in for 233,000 chips and after Vanessa Selbst had folded her cards it was onto Dan Smith. He tanked for a bit and than moved all-in as well. The other players folded and we got to see the following showdown.

Dan Smith{A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Kwinsee Khoa Tran{K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

The board ran out {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and with another very unlucky river Smith lost most of his chips. He was knocked down to just 40,000. The very next hand Vanessa Selbst raised to 24,000 from the hijack and Smith, who was in the cutoff, moved all-in. Nicolas Verkaik was sitting on the button and quickly he decided to move in for his last 199,000 chips. Action got folded back around to Selbst who gave it some thought and made the call.

Dan Smith{A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Vanessa Selbst{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Nicolas Verkaik{A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Spades}{8-Diamonds} giving Selbst the winner and all of a sudden we are down to just 15 players.
