Hand #16: Gavin Smith won't be winning his second World Series of Poker bracelet here today as he was just eliminated by Tony Cousineau.
It happened when Matthew Ashton brought it in with the and both Cousineau and Smith limped. Ashton and Cousineau checked fourth, and then only the latter called a bet from Smith. Fifth street saw Smith check, Cousineau bet and Smith check-raise. Cousineau came along and then called when Smith bet his last 27,000 on sixth.
Smith tabled a pair of threes with a seven-five low, but Cousineau's low was better with a six-four. Cousineau ended up pairing his eight on seventh to make a better high, while the eight Smith received provided him no help.
Smith shook hands with the entire table before exiting the stage in seventh place.
