Carter Gill Can't Lose

A great day for Carter Gill has continued right up to the very end. He raised to 2,500 from middle position. Action folded to Mark Greenwood in the big blind, who reraised all in for a total of about 5,000.

"Oh, you caught me," sighed Gill. "I was just trying to steal the short stack's blind." But perhaps feeling priced in, Gill called and turned over {Q-Clubs} {2-Spades}. But because today is clearly his day, he was ahead of Greenwood's {9-Diamonds} {8-Clubs}. The board ranout {A-Clubs} {10-Spades} {5-Clubs} {5-Spades} {A-Diamonds} to make both players two pair, aces and fives. But Gill's queen kicker carried the day and won him the pot. Greenwood was eliminated.
