$5,000 Ante Up For Africa Poker Tournament

Disappointment on Table 52


Italian star Francesca Fioretti was recently knocked out of the tournament by Carter Phillips, much to David Alan Grier's disappointment.

"The most beautiful woman in the world was there," Grier said to the player who replace Fioretti. "Smell that chair! I didn't even want to be here anymore." Grier then moved all in. His {j-Clubs}{j-Spades} wound up called in two spots, by pocket nines and pocket sixes.

Grier put his hands over his eyes so as not to watch the board roll out {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{a-Spades}. "Am I out?" he asked.

"You're out," the dealer replied. Perhaps Grier can drown his sorrows with the other busted players (like Fioretti).
