Event #64: $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold'em

Yu is Eliminated

• Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Ben Yu

Igor Poldiaev moved all-in from under-the-gun for 156,000 and Ben Yu was next to act and wasted no time, putting his 151,000 in the middle. The action folded around behind and both hands were tabled.

Igor Poldiaev: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Ben Yu: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

As soon as the cards were tabled the player on the button told Poldiaev that he folded the same hand, crushing some of his hope. The flop came {5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} giving Poldiaev a gutshot to go along with his two overcards. The turn was the {k-Hearts} which was a good card for Yu, now giving him a flush draw, but the river fell {4-Clubs} making Poldiaev the bicycle straight and eliminating Yu from the tournament.
