Phelps PCA Run Comes To An End

The PCA 2013 Main Event has a special feel to it, but that was made all the more special with the participation of the most-decorated Olympian of all time in Michael Phelps. Unfortunately, Phelps just fell at the hands of Eddy Sabat.

According to Sabat, he opened for 4,800 and received a call from Phelps. The rest of the field got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop. Sabat led for 6,200, Phelps called, and then the dealer burned and turned the {6-Clubs}.

This time Sabat checked and Phelps took the opportunity to bet 8,000. Sabat called and the {J-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Surprisingly Sabat moved all in and Phelps called off his stack with {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Unfortunately for him, Sabat flipped {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for Broadway and Phelps' PCA came to an end.
