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

Moussa's Bests Eastgate


2008 Main Event Champion Peter Eastgate opened for 9,000 from middle position and he found one caller in Bassel Moussa in the big blind.

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} and Moussa checked-called a 10,000 bet from Eastgate.

Both players then proceeded to check down on the {5-Spades} turn and {8-Clubs} river.

"Five," announced Moussa. He then tabled {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for a pair of fives and Eastgate mucked without showing.

Moussa is sitting on 290,000, while Eastgate has slipped to 110,000.
