Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

David Nicholson Eliminated in 26th Place ($16,220)

Chad_Holloway • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
David Nicholson - 26th Place

Action folded to David Nicholson on the button and he raised to 18,000. Jamie Armstrong was in the small blind and pushed back with a three-bet to 50,000, which prompted the big to fold. Nicholson opted for a four-bet to 115,000 and then snap-called off for 340,000 after Armstrong moved all in.

Armstrong: {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Nicholson: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

It appeared Armstrong had picked a bad spot, but this is an elimination post so you already know there was some tomfoolery in the hand. The {8-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop was harmless enough to Nicholson, but the {2-Hearts} turn posed a threat as Armstrong picked up a flush draw.

Much to Nicholson's dismay, the {8-Hearts} spiked on the river to give Armstrong the said flush. Nicholson exits in 26th place and will take home $16,220.
