Brian Roberts Eliminated in 7th Place (€128,565)

[user198217] • Level 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Brian Roberts - 7th Place

Paul Newey raised it up to 120,000 from the cut and watched as the action folded around to Brian Roberts on the big blind. He made the call and both watched as the flop came down {q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

Roberts thought about his decision for over a minute before sliding out a bet worth 110,000 in chips. Newey then tanked over his decision before placing in a large enough raise to have Roberts covered.

After a quick glance down at his cards, Roberts committed his remaining 580,000 into the pot and both players tabled their cards.

Roberts: {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Newey: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

Roberts had flopped top pair but it was no match against Newey’s over pair. Roberts would find no help as the board ran out the {8-Clubs} and {6-Clubs} to see him being the first player eliminated from the final table.

The remaining six players are all guaranteed at least €159,170 for their efforts.
