We’ll admit that the title is factually accurate whilst also being a little misleading as all the chip went in pre-flop, but it was a pretty sick run out.
It was Sahashi Hideki who was the man to send our latest casualty, Jesus Fernandez, to the rail and the Japanese player was the initial pre-flop aggressor, opening the action with a raise to what looked to be 80,000 in the hi-jack.
Sitting in the small blind Fernandez took a gander at his hole cards and moved all-in for a little over 600,000 – which was also around the same as Hideki had. The Japanese player made the call and the cards were turned over.
Fernandez thought it was his lucky day when the flop came down to give him a set and see him take the lead. However, what the poker gods giveth they can also taketh away and the turn was the meaning the UK-based Spaniard needed to hit the deck’s sole remaining four. The river was not it and the field is now down to 16.
