$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Boxell & Zmurkic Sent Packing

We saw Vesko Zmukic rise from his seat and hurried to his table, arriving just in time to see his elimination hand. We're not sure of the action, but we do know that Zmukic had {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} laid out in front of him but his opponent held {Q-}{J-} on a {9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{K-} board for a straight. Zmukic swung by our desk and informed us that he got it all in preflop only to get unlucky. He was also quick to add that he will be back in action tomorrow.

"Good game," Zmukic said before exiting the tournament area. Meanwhile, Leo Boxell has also been eliminated from the tournament.
