Event #18: $1,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em

Nick Palma Eliminated in 5th Place ($85,761)

Nick Palma

Bryan Schultz opened to 800,000 on the button and Young Sik Eum and Nick Palma called from the blinds.

The flop came out {5-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Eum led out for 1,200,000, but then Palma ripped it all in for 3,500,000, getting a fold from Schultz but a call from Eum.

Palma then proudly turned over {q-}{j-} for top two pair as Eum turned over {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}.

"Top two versus a gutter!" Palma shouted at his rail, who was cheering him on.

But the {10-Spades} came on the turn, a true blow for Palma, who got his money in ahead.

The river {6-Diamonds} did not provide the full house Palma needed and he was eliminated in fifth place for $85,761.
