Chartier & Iacofano Disappear

Sam Chartier

We're not exactly sure of the preflop betting, but it appeared Sam Chartier raised from the cutoff, Brandon Barnes three-bet from the small blind, Chartier shipped, and Barnes called.

Barnes: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Chartier: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}

It was a bad spot for Chartier, but it got much worse when the flop fell {10-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Barnes flopped a full house and left Chartier drawing to the {K-Spades} and {J-Spades} for a runner-runner royal flush. While that would have been quite the story, the {2-Clubs} turn dashed those hope and left Chartier drawing dead. The {2-Hearts} was put out on the river for good measure and Barnes was pushed the pot.

Meanwhile, Kevin Iacofano has been eliminated from the tournament.
