Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Aces don't Always Win

• Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

When you are a short stack and you look down at pocket aces, you feel like you have hit the jackpot. Unfortunately for Ryan Fox, it quickly turned to disaster as he has busted from the event. Fox shoved his last 9,000 into the pot and was called by Christopher Ooley and Stefan Martin.

The flop came {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, and Ooley bet out causing Martin to fold. Ooley showed {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped set, and Fox would need help with his {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. He wouldn't get it, as the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, and Fox has been eliminated.
