Matt Stout headed over to the PokerNews Live Reporting Desk to take a gander at the Stanley Cup Playoff Game 7 currently underway between the L.A. Kings and the Chicago Blackhawks.
As his visit became an extended one, us swapping hockey stories with the most avid New York Rangers fan this side of Madison Square Garden, it was soon clear that his time in Event #9 had come to an end.
Stout was kind enough to run us through a postmortem of his bustout hand, as his was ran down by in an all-in confrontation before the flop. One player opened for 600, Stout three-bet shoved for his last 2,450, and the raiser looked him up. The first three board cards were bad news for Stout, coming to give his opponent a flush draw, but it was a on the turn which left him drawing thin.
The river came to leave Stout with no pair - and no chips - but he happily headed out to catch the rest of the game, hoping the Kings can mount a comeback to gain entrance to the Stanley Cup Finals - where Stout's beloved Rangers lie in wait.
