Nikolaos Alafogiannis Eliminated in 13th Place ($70,000)

[user66118]
Nikolaos Alafogiannis - 13th place

First into the pot from the hijack, Nikolaos Alafogiannis open-shoved for 460,000, and the action paused on Martin Jacobson next door. After a couple moments, he said, "I'm all in, too," and slid a tower of chips across the line. That folded everyone else quickly, and Alafogiannis was at risk for the nth time today. He liked his chances once again.

Showdown
Alafogiannis: {7-Spades} {8-Spades}
Jacobson: {K-Spades} {Q-Diamonds}

"You called me with king-queen?!" Alafogiannis asked, halfway serious. He was standing now as the dealer burned one and gave him favorable {10-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {7-Clubs} flop.

Suddenly, David Bernstein appeared from the featured table, and he came over to root, "Jack!" and sweat the last two cards. "Jack!"

The turn was the blank {10-Clubs}, though, but the foreshadowing came in on fifth. The ol' {J-Spades} dropped off the deck, and a couple people quickly said, "Good game," happy to have finally shaken the pesky Alafogiannis. He laddered up like a champ today with a variety of interesting doubles, but he could not find one more double on his final hand. He's out in 13th place, good for a $70,000 consolation prize.
