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

Falk and Falcaro Chop

• Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Another all in just took place, but not another elimination. From the button, Claudio Falcaro raised to 30,000. Adam Falk then pushed all in for his remaining 66,000. Falcaro made the call and Falk's {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} was well ahead of Falcaro's {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}.

Much to Falk's dismay, the flop came {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to put Falcaro into a dominating lead. The {10-Hearts} on the turn gave Falk some chop outs and the {a-Clubs} on the river did indeed give both players the same ace-high straight.

Falk is still short stacked and will need some help to stay afloat.
