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

MacPhee Doubles, Then Busts

Kevin MacPhee open-shoved his last 21,000 from middle position and Giovanni Rizzo made an isolation reraise to get himself heads up with a chance to eliminated MacPhee.

Showdown
MacPhee: {7-Spades} {7-Hearts}
Rizzo: {2-Clubs} {2-Hearts}

The board ran {Q-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} {Q-Clubs}, and MacPhee doubled up to about 65,000. It didn't last long, however.

A few hands later, Thomas Denny limped first in from the small blind, and MacPhee shipped it in from the big. Denny quickly called with {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs}, and MacPhee was in trouble but drawing live with his {J-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}. He wasn't drawing particularly live after the flop, and the board of {A-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {A-Spades} {6-Spades} has eliminated him from the Main Event.
