Dan Kelly was under the gun and raised to 800. Oliver Speidel then moved all in for 9,125, which cleared the field all the way back to Marvin Rettenmaier in the small blind. He asked for a count on Kelly, who had about 15,000 behind, and then moved all in over the top. Kelly flashed and folded.
Speidel, who defeated a field of 86 players last year in this very event to capture a $100,595 prize, was in big trouble and in desperate need of a ten. Unfortunately for him, it was not meant to be as the board ran out . Speidel, who finished runner up in the $1,100 NLHE Shootout the other day, was eliminated shy of the dinner break.
