Event 9: $10,500 Aussie Millions Main Event

Mama Mia

Tasmanian George Mamacas has recently been eliminated from the tournament by Ben Savage.

Mamacas opened the pot with a preflop raise to 2,000 from the button and Savage was the only caller.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and Savage checked to Mamacas who fired a 3,000 bet. Savage made the call.

The turn brought the {3-Diamonds} and Savage opened with a 5,500 bet. Mamacas then moved all in for a total of 9,825 and Savage called:

Savage: {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Mamacas: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}

Mamacas' hand was best when the money went in, but the {9-Spades} fell on the river completing Savage's straight, subsequently sending Mamacas to the rail.

Savage stacked up 43,200 in chips after the hand.
