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

Curse of the Chip Lead?

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

It seems that holding the chip lead at this final table is not the blessing in disguise that it appears to be, with Matthew Elsby having spewed off more chips, this time to Harrison Wilder.

The action folded to Wilder who raised before the flop, only to see Elsby reraise before Wilder called to see a flop that read {J-Spades}{7-Spades}{Q-Spades}. Elsby opened and Wilder called both after the flop and after the turn of the {9-Clubs} before Elsby check-called Wilder on the river of the {8-Spades}.

Wilder tabled {K-Clubs}{4-Spades} for a flush and Elsby mucked angrily - fair enough, seeing as he's now under half a million in chips.
