Ladies Champion Down

Chad_Holloway
Lisa Hamilton

Lisa Hamilton, who you may recall won the World Series of Poker Ladies Event in 2009 for $195,390, moved all in from the button for 118,000. Max Steinberg was in the small blind and decided to move all in himself for 327,000, and surprisingly Minh Vu, who had both players covered, call from the big.

Showdown
Hamilton: {A-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Steinberg: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Vu: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

Hamilton was in bad shape, while Vu needed to catch either an ace or king to score the double elimination. The {5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades} flop gave Hamilton a little hope of catching another three, but the {9-Clubs} meant she'd have to do it on the river. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {2-Clubs}.

Hamilton was eliminated in 19th place, while Vu was left with just 18,000; meanwhile, Steinberg chipped up to 782,000.
