Gioia Bubbles Out of Final Table

mnuwwarah • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Gene Gioia ran a set into a flush.

Dan Colpoys checked to Gene Gioia on a board of {10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. Gioia fired 130,000, and Colpoys announced all in after getting a count. Gioia snap-called.

Gioia: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Colpoys: {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

Gioia had flopped the nuts, but it's better to turn the nuts, as Colpoys had. Needing the board to pair, the Day 1 chipleader watched a {9-Hearts} fall, ending his tournament.
