WSOPE Main Event Final Table: LOST ONE!

WSOPE Main Event Final Table: LOST ONE!

Thursday, 2 October 2008

Stanislav Alekhin looks like the antithesis of the Unabomber. Hoodie, shades, but all of it a menacing black. I wouldn't steal his big blind, personally. He's also just sent Chris Elliott spinning out of the tournament, chasing down Elliott's flopped two pair.

The game is cruel, and so it proved for Scotsman Chris Elliott. Flopping two pair on a Th-9h-2c board, all of the money went in on the turn when Alekhin put Elliott all in with the nut-flush draw.

The river is the heart-piercing Kc, meaning we have lost our first player from the final table of the WSOPE Main Event. Elliott earns £81,450 for his ninth place finish.
