Event 16: Chip Leader Out

$260 + $40 Deep Stack NL

A couple hands ago Chris Galvin, our fourth place finisher of this tournament last year, had 480,000 chips. So how in the world could I just see him walking out of the Event Center?

Hand 1) Galvin's A-Q up against Opponent's A-4. 4 spikes, crippling Chris.

Hand 2) Three-way all in action. Again Chris has the best hand. Galvin's JJ against Opponent's 66 and Mark Videtto 88.

Flop: A-8-3
Turn: 3
River: 6

Videtto's better set knocks two players out, including Chris Galvin.

And how about that poor guy hitting his meaningless 6 on the river.
Poker Gods love to kick you when you're down.

As for Mark, he's used to serving shots - he's a bartender in Verona, NJ.

Floor, we need more players at Table 2!
