Gallaher Loses Race to Grafton

AnthonyThompson • Level 6: 400-800, 800 ante
John Gallaher

The player under the gun raised to 1,800 and Sam Grafton three-bet to 9,000 from the small blind.

Action was on John "Johnny Run Good" Gallaher who four-bet to 24,000 from the big blind and the initial raiser folded while Grafton five-bet jammed.

Gallaher called off his 75,000 stack and the two players tabled their hands.

John Gallaher: {q-}{q-}
Sam Grafton: {a-}{k-Clubs}

It was a classic race with Gallaher in the lead with his made hand of queens and nothing changed after the {7-}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop.

The turn came the {9-Clubs}, giving Grafton more outs with the club flush draw and he connected with the {k-Diamonds} river, eliminating Gallaher from the tournament.
