Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Joseph Urgo Eliminated in 9th Place ($36,198)

Joseph Urgo - 9th place

Joseph Urgo's past couple of hands have been a rollercoaster, losing a big one and then doubling up a few hands later. Unfortunately the ride is over for Urgo. After moving all in Urgo received a call from his old nemesis Simon Charette and was at risk of being knock out.

Urgo: {J-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Charette: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}

A {8-Hearts}{A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} was probably the worst flop Urgo could have seen as an ace fell pairing his opponent and two hearts hit the felt giving him a flush draw to boot. Only the {j-Spades} could come and save Urgo, and the {6-Hearts} on the turn wasn't even close. Charette hit his flush and Urgo was drawing dead. A {k-Clubs} landed on the river and Urgo was eliminated in 9th place.
