AaronMcBride • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Ben Winsor

Craig McCorkell was playing from the small blind, and Benjamin Winsor was in middle position when they got all their chips into the middle preflop with almost identical stacks.

Winsor: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
McCorkell: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Board: {j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{a-Spades}{6-Hearts}

Winsor increased his lead on the flop with top set, although McCorkell had outs to the straight. But Winsor's hand held strong on the turn and river. Winsor's stack was confirmed at 88,000, and McCorkell was left with just 6,000.

In the next hand, McCorkell was all in from the button with queen-jack suited and up against pocket fives. The flop brought a five, and McCorkell was eliminated.
