$5,000 Ante Up For Africa Poker Tournament

Shannon Stays Alive


Annie Duke opened to 1,600 from the button only to have Shannon Elizabeth move all in from the small blind for 3,600, along with the big blind for substantially more.

"Thank you very much, because I would have had to call and stick in money with just eight-high" uttered Duke as she flashed her {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} before folding.

Elizabeth: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Opponent: {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

The board was spread {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{9-Spades} to see Elizabeth double through to 8,800.

"Thank you very much, very, very, very much!" Duke continued to say as the dealer began the next hand.
