Silverman Crippled, Then Eliminated

Steven Silverman
Disaster has struck for Steven Silverman. After Ivan Tan opened in the cutoff for 7,100, Silverman pushed all in for about 57,000. Tan snap-called with {A-Spades} {A-Hearts} and was up against Silverman's {7-Diamonds} {7-Clubs}. The board ran out {8-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {2-Spades} {9-Hearts} {K-Clubs} and when the stacks were counted down, Silverman had Tan covered by just 2,200 chips.

On the very next hand, Silverman was in the small blind for 1,200. After posting the 400-chip ante, he moved all in for his last 600 without looking at his cards. Andrew Scott made it 8,000 to go from the cutoff and took his shot at Silverman with {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds}. Silverman had two live cards with {7-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} but missed the board completely. He's out.
