Mayer Falls to Metalidi

After a running pocket nines into pocket queens a few moments prior, we caught up to find a short-stacked Szabolcs Mayer all in and at risk before the flop against the bigger stack of Artem Metalidi.

Metalidi: {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Mayer: {A-Clubs}{2-Spades}

Mayer found his miracle on the flop of {2-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{k-Diamonds}, pairing his deuce and rocketing him into the lead. The turn, however, spelled disaster as the {9-Diamonds} rolled off and paired Metalidi's free card as well. The {8-Hearts} sealed Mayer's fate and sent him home, while Metalidi's stack is now at about 345,000.
