Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Early Elimination

[user198205] • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

As a result of the small (3,000) starting stacks, it isn't surprising to see players taking risks early.

With the board reading {k-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} a player had bet 1,100 and Brian Wong pushed all in. The other player looked almost sick while deciding if he was willing to put the rest of his chips into the pot. He eventually made the call and found that his {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for a flopped set had been bested by Wong's {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for a turned straight. The river brought the {7-Hearts} and Wong sent the other player to the rail.

After the hand Wong's stack was up to around 6,300.
