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

Wilson Down to Just 300K

Brendon Rubie opened preflop for 125,000 and Scott Wilson three-bet to 250,000. Rubie made the call and then watched as the flop came down {8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Wilson led out for 350,000, Rubie called, and the {Q-Spades} hit the turn. This time Wilson checked, Rubie bet 325,000, and Wilson called.

When the {A-Clubs} hit the turn, Wilson checked, Rubie slid out a huge stack, what turned out to be 1.2 million, and Wilson called. Rubie confidently rolled over {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and seemed to know he was good. Indeed he was as Wilson tossed his cards to the muck.

Rubie went over to the rail to celebrate, thinking he had won, but when the stacks were counted down, Wilson was left with 300,000. A chip and a chair, folks.

Brendon Rubie au 9,100,000 2,200,000
Scott Wilson ca 300,000 -2,200,000
