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

Kings No Match for Stavropoulos

Manny Stavropoulos shipped all in preflop for about 350,000 and Brendon Rubie snap-called from the big blind.

Rubie: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Stavropoulos: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

Rubie had woke up with a monster hand and left Stavropoulos in need of some help, which he found as he paired his ace on the {2-Spades}{A-Spades}{6-Spades} flop. Suddenly Rubie needed a king to eliminate Stavropoulos, but it didn't happen as the {7-Clubs} hit the turn followed by the {9-Clubs} on the river.

Chip stacks
Brendon Rubie au 2,200,000 -250,000
Manny Stavropoulos au 800,000 325,000
