Orlina's Aces Hold, Flush Finishes Reddy Off

[user197301] • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Joh Orlina pushed all-in for his last 40,000 or so chips and Sumanth Reddy insta-called with his {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. Orlina tabled the {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and was in the lead at the moment. After the dealer spread a final board of {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, Orlina's bullets were good and he scored the double-up to nearly 80,000 chips.

Just two hands later Orlina moved in for the kill on the newly short-stacked Reddy and the players got all of the chips middle once more. This time it was Reddy who held pocket rockets with his {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. Orlina tabled the {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and looked to accomplish what Reddy had failed to do two hands earlier: crack aces.

The dealer spread a flop of {2-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Orlina did the trick, flopping the nut flush to take command in the hand. A {2-Hearts} on the river afforded Reddy a slim chance of survival, as he could now spike a deuce or the case ace to make a full house.

River: {7-Clubs}

With that, Reddy's tournament had come to an end and he was eliminated in 28th place. Orlina now sits with about 140,000 chips as we move to our last three tables.
