Gee's Accidental Call Eliminates Nick DiVella in 72nd Place ($106,056)

Nick DiVella has been eliminated. Like all who are knocked out of the Main Event, he's probably wondering what might have been, although in his case the last hand in particular is likely foremost in his thoughts.

DiVella announced he was all in from early position, setting out a stack of orange chips as he did, and the dealer repeated his declaration. It was folding around the table when one player asked how much DiVella was in for, and it was clarified he was all in for 675,000 total.

It folded to Steven Gee on the button who tossed out 75,000. He'd missed the all-in declaration, and had thought the raise was only for 75,000 (actually less than what the minimum raise would be during this level) and he was calling. The floor was called over, and it was determined that Gee had called the all-in raise. The blinds folded, then DiVella showed his {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}. Gee's hand was turned over to show he had {K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

The flop came {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and DiVella was still ahead, but the {7-Spades} landed on the turn to pair Gee. The river was the {8-Clubs}, and DiVella was eliminated.
