Ethier Eliminates Marcus with Lowly Pair of Deuces



We caught the action with Kevin Marcus all in against Denis Ethier in a hand of Stud-8.

Marcus: ({9-Diamonds})({A-Spades}) - {2-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} - (X)
Ethier: ({A-Hearts})({2-Hearts}) - {5-Spades}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{8-Clubs} /-({2-Clubs})

We missed the preliminary betting but at some point Marcus committed his last few chips. Ethier squeezed his final down card on seventh street and revealed just a pair of deuces. Marcus had many high cards showing and could not make a low, but he could pair any of his cards to win the pot and survive his all-in confrontation.

We did not see what Marcus was dealt on seventh street, but apparently the dealer tossed him a brick because he soon departed the Amazon Room with a 17th-place finish.
