poolshir • Level 15: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Tom Rafferty

Vesko Zmukic raised to 27,000 from the early position and Sandy Sinclair three-bet to 54,000 on the button. Tom Rafferty shoved fro 55,000 in the big blind for both Zmukic and Sinclair to make the call.

They then both checked through the whole {2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} board. Rafferty held {q-}{q-} but was behind against the {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} of Sinclair while Zmukic held {9-}{9-}.

Rafferty quickly made his way out of the tournament area while the rest of the field was congratulated on being in the money.
