Event #8: $1,600 Mystery Bounty

New Chipleader on Table 31

MartianNews • Level 14: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Elliot Smith opened to 14,000 from under the gun and Caleb Shumard three-bet, making it 35,000 to go. Smith ripped it in for around 281,000 and Shumard snap-called in the biggest pot of the night.

Elliot Smith: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Caleb Shumard: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The cowboys had a commanding lead on the hand but a very wet-looking {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} flop hit the felt, giving the Canadian a flush draw.

An {a-Diamonds} peeled off on the turn, hitting Smith with a lead-changing bullet and the {6-Hearts} sealed it for him. Elliot reeled in a chip lead pot after besting the kings of Shumard just two eliminations away from Day 2.
