Event #44: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em

Steven Kelly Eliminated in 11th Place ($16,663)

Steven Kelly - 11th place


Gavin Smith opened from the cutoff with a raise to 27,000 and it folded back to Steven Kelly in the small blind who pushed all in with his last 180,000. Danny Hannawa folded from the BB, and Smith snap-called.

Kelly {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Smith {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

The flop came {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{9-Spades} and Smith was still in front, but the {J-Spades} gave Kelly the lead. But the {K-Hearts} fell on the river, giving Smith the better pair and ending Kelly's hopes for back-to-back bracelets (after winning Event #39, the $1,500 NLHE Shootout earlier this week.)

We're down to ten, and the remaining players are now rearranging themselves around a single table.
