Luke Vrabel Eliminates One Foe and Doubles Through Another

simkha • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Luke Vrabel

Ronald Lemco moved all in from under the gun for approximately 480,000, Robert Elliott reshoved from middle position for about 2,100,000, and Luke Vrabel called all in for 1,830,000.

Lemco tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, but he trailed both Elliott, who showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}, and Vrabel, who dominated them both with {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}.

The board ran out {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Vrabel's hand stayed best. He rocketed out of his seat and let out an ear-splitting cheer, prompting a player at an adjacent table to tell him to take a deep breath.

"Don't tell me to take a deep breath!" Vrabel belted. "That was the biggest #$^@%$ spot of my life."
