Duval Dented and Elfan Eliminated

The board is now showing thirty-seven players and one of them is not David Elfan. We missed his elimination but understand it was Fernando Brito who eliminated him. Brito, who has won close to $1 million mainly in Europe, is now hovering in the 630,000 region after having a fantastic few levels.

The reason we missed the Elfan elimination is because we were watching Frank Rusnak doubling up. All of the money went into the middle pre-flop with Rusnak holding {Q-Hearts} {J-Spades} and Duval holding {A-Spades} {J-Diamonds}. So Rusnak was dominated and the situation was even more woeful after the flop.

Flop: {A-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs}

According to our PokerNews odds calculator Rusnak only had an 8.38% chance to win this hand.

Turn: {Q-Diamonds}

"What the…" said Duval.

The river was the {9-Clubs} and Rusnak had found a very unlikely double-up.
