Adam Maxwell during the final table of the Grand Prix UK Main Event

Adam Maxwell was the first casualty of the official final table after he was knocked out by Antonia Poulengeris.

From early position Maxwell moved all in for his remaining 12 million holding {10-Spades}{10-Hearts} and found himself flipping against the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} of Poulengeris, who re-shoved from the button, having Maxwell covered.

The flop was safe for Maxwell, showing {5-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} but the {Q-Hearts} turn gave Poullengeris a flush draw to go with his two over cards.

The {8-Hearts} was enough for Poulengeris, and with his backdoor flush, he sent Maxwell to the rail.
