Event #27: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Barry Greenstein Eliminated in 3rd Place ($169,512)

Barry Greenstein

After having been grinded all the way down to around 200,000, Barry Greenstein raised from the small blind and Matthew Gallin called from the big. On the {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop, Greenstein led out and Gallin went into the tank. He eventually raised which put Greenstein all in who called.

Greenstein: {Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Gallin: {10-Spades}{5-Spades}

Greenstein was in dominating position and in great shape to double up. The turn was the {A-Hearts} which gave Gallin some additional outs. He would need a two or five to knock out Greenstein while a three would chop the pot. The river was the {5-Hearts} and Gallin sucked out to win the hand. He finally received his copy of ‘Ace on the River’ that he was so close to getting earlier from Greenstein who was eliminated.
