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

Sevens vs. Eights

Matviy Bilenky shoved all in preflop and was called by Sean Robey, who held a smaller stack.

Robey: {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Bilenky: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Bilenky had all but 70,000 of his chips in the middle and was in rough shape. The {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Spades} flop was fairly dry, though the {4-Hearts} turn gave Bilenky an open-ended straight draw. Unfortunately for him, the {4-Spades} blanked on the river and he was crippled.

Robey doubled on the hand to 250,000 but is still well below the chip average.

Chip stacks
Sean Robey 250,000 35,000
Matviy Bilenky 70,000 -230,000
