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

You Sir, Are Gone


It didn't take long to bust a few players after the dinner break, with Sam Youssef the latest player to hit the rail. Youssef got his short stack all in preflop holding {q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and had to come up against the {a-Spades}{3-Hearts} of Brendon Rubie.

When the board ran out {8-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{8-Spades}{k-Clubs}{a-Hearts}, it was all over for the player who finished up as the chip leader on Day 1b. Youssef was eliminated in 21st place and received $6,200 for his effort.
