A Gruissem Exit for Holden


Former World Series of Poker November Niner Sam Holden was just eliminated. Doing the deed was Philipp Gruissem and his set of jacks. Here's how it happened.

The two put a few thousand in each with Holden three-betting Gruissem's open before seeing the {J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop. Gruissem was in position and called Holden's flop bet of 5,800 to see the {8-Hearts} fall on fourth street. Both players checked.

The river was the {A-Hearts}, and Holden moved all in for 24,500. Gruissem snapped with the {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds} and beat Holden's {A-Spades}{10-Hearts} to send him to the rail.
