Stephen Reynolds Eliminates Nicholas Augustino

Nicholas Augustino - 25th place

It has not taken long to lose our first player…thirteen minutes in fact. That unfortunate nameplate has just been affixed to Nicholas Augustino. He made a standard raise on the button and when the action folded to Stephen Reynolds in the big blind he moved all-in. It was just what Augustino had ben waiting for and he snap-called.

Augustino{A-Clubs} {K-Hearts}
Reynolds{J-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds}

The PokerNews Odds Calculator shows us that Augustino was a 59.82% favorite to win the hand. The flop came down {Q-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {5-Clubs} and despite Reynolds taking the lead Augustino was still a 59.39% favorite because of his additional flush-outs. The turn {5-Hearts} swung the pendulum around and he was now a 38.64% dog before the {J-Hearts} on the river made the percentages completely irrlevant. Augustino was out.
