Ajayi Eliminates Welch

GeoffFisk • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Dapo Ajayi

Dapo Ajayi took the tournament chip lead after bringing in a massive pot against Matt Welch.

Ajayi, on the button, and Welch, in the big blind, got all of the chips in on the {5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop, with Ajayi having Welch covered.

Matt Welch: {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Dapo Ajayi: {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Both players had plenty of equity when the chips went in, with Welch taking the lead on the {6-Hearts} turn. Welch's flush was rendered no good on the {6-Spades} river, however, as that card brought in a full house for Ajayi, and sent Welch to the exit.
