Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

The Spin King Eliminated by Lolis

• Level 3: 200-400, 400 ante

Michael Jordan, John Elway, Shane Warne. All regarded as one of the best sportsmen of their generation depending on which country you're from.

The sport of cricket isn't popular in the United States, but nearly everywhere else in the world, cricket has a religion-like status. From the 1990's to late 2000's, Warne was at the top of the game wielding an arsenal of trick deliveries that baffled batsman on cricket pitches all around the world.

As Warne's cricketing career slowed down, his poker career began to pick up. Warne has been a mainstay at both his local casino in Melbourne, Australia, and the WSOP each year.

Always trekking out to play the Main Event, his appearance in the field today was a short lived one as he was just eliminated by David Lolis.

Lolis detailed that he opened with a raise holding {a-}{a-} and both a player in late position, and Warne called to see a {q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop.

Lolis continued with a bet of 3,100 and the player in the middle raised to 11,000. Warne called, and Lolis responded by moving all in having both players covered. The raiser folded, but Warne called all in holding {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}.

The turn and river bricked out with the {3-Spades} and {9-Diamonds}, and Warne was eliminated here on Day 1a, while Lolis soared up the leaderboard to contend with the chip leaders.
