HRW 16: $10,300 NLHE 6-Max High Roller

Darren Elias Eliminated in 6th Place ($54,907)

MartianNews • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 9,000 ante

Darren Elias opened to 126,000 from the cutoff and directly on his left was Joao Vieira who three-bet to 315,000. Elias shoved for a total of 1,224,452 and Vieira snapped, putting Elias at risk.

Darren Elias: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Joao Vieira: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

Elias was a sure favorite to take down this pot and become the new chip leader. A {q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop hit Vieira with a pair of ladies but Elias was still well in front with his aces.

An {8-Clubs} turn left Vieira with one last chance for romance, needing an unlikely lady to send Elias to the rail. The {q-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, hitting Vieira in the face with the deck to send Elias out the door in sixth on what was the sickest beat of the day.
