No Book For Pinkus

While famously known for giving a copy of his book Ace on the River, to any player that busted him from a tournament, Brian Pinkus was not lucky enough to receive a copy today when he eliminated Barry Greenstein from this year's Main Event.

After a raise of 2,000 and two calls, Greenstein moved all in from the button for 20,400. The original raiser folded. The first caller, Brian Pinkus, went into the tank for a good two minutes before making the call. That lead to a fold from the other caller and brought Pinkus and Greenstein to a showdown.

Pinkus: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Greenstein: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}

The flop came down {10-Spades}{6-Spades}{10-Spades} giving Greenstein no help. The {K-Diamonds} on the turn paired Pinkus' live card, but also gave Greenstein outs to a gutshot straight draw. The river was the {6-Clubs} though and even though the pair double paired, Pinkus' pair of kings was enough to give him the knock out, but not a copy of Ace on the River.
