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

Eastgate EliminatesTayfeh


Action started with Peter Eastgate raising it up to 30,000 in early position. It folded to Mohsen Tayfeh in the small blind, and he three bet it to 70,000. Eastgate tanked for just a few moments before grabbing a stack of green T25,000 chips, and putting them into the middle. Tayfeh called all in, and was in rough shape when the cards were tabled.

Eastgate: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Tayfeh: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The flop brought no miracles for Tayfeh, coming {4-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{j-Hearts}. Tayfeh would still need a ten or running straight cards to win the hand, but the {q-Hearts} on the turn sealed things. The meaningless river was the {k-Spades}, and Eastgate collected the bounty, upping his stack to just under 1 million.
