Watson Eliminates an Australian Poker Hall of Famer

Chad_Holloway • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Jason Gray

A preflop raising war resulted in Mike Watson and Jason Gray getting all the chips in the middle. The latter, who finished runner-up to Jeff Lisandro yesterday in Event #2 AU$1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha, was te player at risk.

Gray: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Watson: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

As we've seen so many times today it was an aces-versus-kings situation, and like in most of those cases, the aces held after the board ran out {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Well actually both players made a flush, but of course Watson's ace-high flush was best.
