Sahamies Rockets Rufar to the Rail


"All in and a call," we heard a dealer yell as soon as we entered the tournament floor. We rushed over just in time to see Luis Rufas all in preflop from the button with {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. His opponent, Ilari Sahamies, had {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} laid out in front of him in middle position.

We're not sure of the preflop betting action, but we do know that Rufas was out of his seat in preparation for a hasty exit on the {2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop. The {7-Clubs} turn left him drawing dead, and after the meaningless river card was put out, Rufas made his way to the payout desk.
