Rubie Sends Smith to the Rail

Geoff Smith was under the gun and moved all in for his last 39,000. Action folded all the way around to Brendon Rubie in the small blind and he made the call.

Smith: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Rubie: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

It was a classic race and an interesting flop, which came {J-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Rubie had flopped a set but Smith held an open-ended straight draw. The {4-Clubs} turn was a good card for Rubie as it kept him in the lead, while the {A-Spades} locked up the win. Smith hit the rail in Level 16 while Rubie chipped up to 400K.
