Gent Busts Alexander

mnuwwarah • Level 12: 2,000-4,000, 400 ante
Matt Alexander couldn't get anything going on Day 2.

Two players limped from early and middle position, and Matt Alexander shoved for about 50,000 from the cutoff. The button obliged him, while the other players folded.

"I'm drawing to thirty percent," Alexander said before the cards were turned over, and he was correct.

Alexander: {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Gent: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

The {6-Spades}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts} flop quickly reduced that thirty percent to something miniscule, and an {8-Diamonds} turn clinched the hand for Gent.

Alexander's first Day 2 of Mid-States Poker Tour Season 5 proved to be a short one, but the Minnesota pro will undoubtedly be due for a strong showing whenever his luck turns around.
