Main Event

Geyer Busts Alvarado

JC Alvarado was all in preflop for 37,500 with the {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts} against the {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for Adam Geyer. The flop came down {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and kept Geyer in front with his pair. Alvarado did add a straight draw.

The turn was the {K-Spades} and put Alvarado in front with a pair of kings. The river, though, landed with the {9-Hearts} and Geyer was able to spike a gutshot straight to win the hand and eliminate Alvarado from the tournament.

Last year, Geyer ended Day 2 of this event with the chip lead and went on to finish in 45th place for $52,000. He's up to 245,000 now and very much alive to make another deep run this year.
