Chad_Holloway • Level 31: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Shankar Pillai

Clayton "nevarlucky" Maguire raised to 108,125 from the cutoff and "SoccerDJ" called from the small blind. Two-time bracelet winner Shankar "Burgersssss" Pillai came along from the big blind and it was three-way action to the {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}.

Two checks saw Maguire bet 175,125 and both of his opponents called. When the {5-Diamonds} turn put three diamonds on board, "SoccerDJ" checked and Pillai jammed for 722,213. Maguire min-raised and "SoccerDJ" got out of the way.

Clayton "nevarlucky" Maguire: {9-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Shankar "Burgersssss" Pillai: {j-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Maguire was ahead with two pair but Pillai had both straight and flush draws. Unfortunately for the two-time champ, the {7-Clubs} river was a brick and he fell two spots shy of the final table of eight.
