Patrick Mahoney

After losing with aces to kings a few short hands ago, Patrick Mahoney was down to his last 380,000 and moved all in from under the gun. Dominating chip leader Joseph Di Rosa Rojas was in the cutoff and called.

Mahoney was at risk with {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} against Rojas' {6-Spades}{6-Hearts} for a coin flip.

The flop came {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, and Mahoney picked up a straight draw to go with his two overcards. The turn was the {9-Diamonds} for some more outs to counterfeit Rojas, but the river was the {a-Hearts} and he was the first one to be eliminated today.

The rail was talking about Mahoney's aces getting cracked, and one gentleman said, "It's sick. You play for days and this is how you go out."
