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

Schirp Sent Off

Martijn Schirp

Martijn Schirp raised from the cutoff seat, and William Thorson reraised it right back at him. Schirp moved all in for just a few chips on top, and Thorson called the extra bit to put his man to the test. Cards up, gents.

Schirp: {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts}
Thorson: {J-Clubs} {9-Clubs}

"What did you drink at dinner?" Schirp asked. It would be his last conversation with Thorson tonight. The board ran out unfavorable for the at-risk Dutchman, coming {6-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} {2-Spades} {J-Spades}. That river was bad news for his chances to win this thing, and he has been eliminated from the field.
