Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Marion Puts Up A Brick!

Shawn Marion receives "The nail in the coffin!"

On a flop of {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}, Shawn Marion fired out 2,000 only to have the small blind check-raise to 7,000.

"You're trying to get me out of here huh?" prodded Marion at his opponent.

Marion eventually made the call to see the {5-Spades} land on the turn and the small blind move all in for 17,950. Marion made the call for his last 7,800 and we were off to a showdown.

Marion: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Opponent: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

With Marion drawing to just a spade, the {10-Diamonds} landed on the river to send the basketball star to the rail.

"I guess that's the end of our TV time" stated one of the players.
