Event 56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

A Royal Time for Harraka


We just saw a hand that produced a decent-sized pot, but a whole lot of excitement.

It started as a three-way hand, but just two players remained by the end, one of them being the relatively short-stacked George Harraka.

All in with {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} against an opponent's {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}, the board rolled out {K-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, giving Harraka a royal flush and the main pot. He survives with just 13 eliminations left until the money.
