Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Party Over for Oliver

Shamus • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Well, we described Chris Oliver as "nursing" his above average stack. But it appears his nursing wasn't so effective, as the stack has suffered some trauma. What we're trying to say is, the chips are all gone and Oliver's seat is empty.

Ben "Benba" Lamb, Oliver's vanquisher, filled us in on the details of his rapid demise. After Lamb opened for 2,300, Oliver reraised to 5,300, and Lamb called. The flop came {k-}{10-}{6-} and Lamb checked. Oliver bet 6,400, and Lamb called. The turn was an {A-} and Lamb checked again. Oliver bet 13,000 this time, and Lamb called once more.

The river was another {A-} and Lamb checked one last time. Oliver shoved all in for about 50,000, and Lamb called, showing {K-}{9-} for aces and kings. Oliver mucked, and tossed his headphones before exiting. Seemed less enjoyable than the money tossing he was describing just before.
