Another Champion Gets The Boot

Archie Martinez

On a recent hand, Independence Day Special champion Christian Aaron Lee got his stack all-in with {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and was looking good against the {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} of Archie Martinez.

Flop: {5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

The flop gave both players a handful of outs as Archie picked up the flush draw while Aaron had a straight draw.

The {a-Diamonds} came on the turn, helping Aaron's cause by putting him ahead with top pair.

He would still need to avoid a club, though, and he wouldn't be able to pull it off as the {8-Clubs} came on the river to send him to the rail.

Archie is now at about 180,000.
