Grippo and ElkY Bust


On one of the first hands played, Nick Grippo was all in and at risk for 50,000 or so with {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. Mohsin Charania had him at risk with {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, and flopped an open-ended straight draw when the dealer fanned {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

The {2-Spades} on the turn gave Grippo a flush draw, blocking some of Charania's outs, but the {6-Clubs} spiked on the river, giving Charania a straight.

Grippo is eliminated, while Charania now has 230,000 chips.

According to Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier's Twitter account, he busted on the very first hand of play:
