Early Exit for a Local Favorite

Don Carmona

Don Carmona, who made the final table at the APT Philippines event in 2008, is already out of contention.

After losing most of his stack in an earlier confrontation, Don got his last 600 all-in against Isaac Galazan and Dong-bin Han.

He managed to stay alive with a chop after he showed down {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds} against Isaac's {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and Dong-bin's {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} on a board of {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.

Just as we turned our heads to check on his stack, it appeared that he had already got his chips all-in again and was on the losing end this time as he was already headed out the door.
