Event #6: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

A Million Doesn't Get You Much These Days

[user135779] • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

No sooner that Matthew Elsby had reached the magical million-chip mark, he shipped a pot over to John Myung in dramatic fashion.

After a raised pot preflop, Elsby and Myung went heads-up to a flop that read {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Elsby bet, Myung raised, Elsby reraised and Myung called before the dealer produced the turn of the {Q-Hearts}.

Elsby opened once again, Myung raised all-in and Elsby beat him into the pot, rolling up {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} but Myung's {J-Spades}{J-Clubs} for the straight! The river {7-Diamonds} didn't change anything, except for the chip counts - Myung is now up to 640,000 while Elsby has slipped to 850,000.
