His Reign Is Over

gqzdaddy • Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante
Event #1 Defending Champion Chad Holloway

Chad Holloway got his last 4,100 in from late position and was called by Sergio Trevino. Holloway had {a-}{8-} and Trevino flipped over {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. The board ran out {q-}{j-}{8-}{9-}{9-} and the event's defending champ Holloway has been eliminated.

"That guy has run pure all day," Holloway mentioned quietly as he rose from the table. Trevino is believed to be the chip leader at around 40,000.

Holloway shared with this reporter yesterday that he was excited about today, but that he was "also kind of sad, as I know my reign is likely over." Level 5 was the official end for Holloway.

It was a good run Chad and we still love you.
