Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout

Vitch Locks Up Seat; Koral Out


Christopher Vitch has had Tom Koral on the ropes for a while now, and the two players finally got it all in before the flop. A short-stacked Koral had {j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} against Vitch's {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

The door card brought hope for Koral as it was the {7-Spades}. The rest of the flop was not so kind, however, as it finished out with the {8-Clubs} and the {Q-Clubs}, pairing Vitch's top card. The {3-Diamonds} turned and the {A-Spades} rivered, sealing up Vitch's victory.

"Had to give me the seven, didn't you?" asked a dejected Koral to the dealer. Koral will take home $3,088 in prize money.

Vitch, however, will be moving on to the final table tomorrow and taking 162,000 chips with him.
