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

Norris Departs Leaving Toestesen With Regrets

[user67765]

In a crazy last hand to finish the evening, Joshua Norris started the action with a raise to 100,000 from the cutoff before Jakob Toestesen made it 265,000 from the button. Action was then with Jonathan Duhamel in the big blind and he announced he was all in, covering both opponents. Norris decided to call all in for his last 1.2 million chips as a rather stunned Toestesen folded {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} face up.

Norris: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Duhamel: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Toestesen wasn't thrilled with what he saw after folding queens, but it got even worse as the flop was spread {J-Spades}{4-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and river the {3-Diamonds} to leave Duhamel's pair in front to take down the monster pot and eliminate Norris from the tournament.
