Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Naydenov Pounces on Patel

[user153638] • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Elish Patel

Action folded to Simeon Naydenov in the cutoff and he raised to 5,000. The button folded, and then Elish Patel announced that he was all in for 29,700. The big folded and Naydenov, who had some chips to spare, thought long and hard before making the call.

Patel: {8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Naydenov: {9-Spades}{8-Spades}

It was a good call by Naydenov as he had Patel dominated.

"Sit down, it's going to be a chop," someone at the table told Patel when he stood up. The {k-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop suggested otherwise. Patel didn't look hopeful, and what little hope he may have had disappeared after the dealer burned and turned the {9-Diamonds} to leave him drawing dead.

The meaningless {Q-Spades} was put out on the river for good measure, and then Patel was escorted to the payout desk to collect $3,893 for his 64th-place finish.
