Event 47 - $2,000 No Limit Holdem

Four Players All in; Matt Mauldin Eliminated in 27th Place ($21,884)

Matt Mauldin is short-stacked and moves all in from early position, Errol Blazyn raises from late position to 55,000, Kuong Lu calls from the cutoff, and Matt Smith moves all in over the top from the big blind for 81,000. Blazyn asks if he can reraise, and a floorperson is called over. The ruling is that the raise was not enough, so Blazyn can only call or fold. Blazyn calls, and Lu calls.

The flop comes {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{3-Spades}, Blazyn bets 100,000, Lu moves all in, and Blazyn calls. All four players reveal their holecards:

Matt Mauldin: {Q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} -- queen high
Matt Smith: {K-Clubs}{K-Spades} -- overpair of kings
Errol Blazyn: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs} -- pair of jacks
Kuong Lu: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades} -- a set of tens

Lu leads with his set, but the turn card is the {K-Hearts}, giving Smith a higher set of kings, and giving Mauldin an open-ended straight draw.

The river card is the {8-Clubs}. Matt Smith wins the main pot with his set of kings, increasing his stack to 380,000. Kuong Lu wins the side pot with a set of tens.

Matt Mauldin is eliminated in 27th place, earning $21,884.
