Yong Sends Grafton to the Rail


Just prior to the break we saw Sam Grafton standing on the rail, and he confirmed that he had in fact been eliminated.

According to him, he opened for 2,500 in early position and received a call from a player in middle position. Rob Yong the three-bet to 7,500, Grafton shipped for 53,000, the other player folded, and Grafton thought about it for a bit before making the call.

Grafton: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Yong: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}

Grafton informed us that, based upon how ling Yong took to call, he thought he was in a race situation. Unfortunately for him, that wasn't the case. The {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-} flop wasn't kind to Grafton as it gave Yong, who was already in the lead, an added flush draw. The {9-} turn as of no consequence, while the {3-Hearts} river completed the said flush and sent Grafton home just shy of Level 12.
