Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Andrew Savitz Eliminated in 8th Place ($79,370)

• Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Andrew Savitz can't stand to look. He is out in 8th.

Action was folded to Andrew Savitz in the cutoff. He raised to 105,000 and the next to players folded to Vanessa Peng in the big blind. She announced that she was all in and after some thought Savitz made the call.

Peng: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Savitz: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Savitz took his traditional all in pose of digging his head into his arms on the table and not watching the cards come out. He didn't see the flop, but we did and it was the {q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Spades}. The turn {6-Diamonds} kept Savitz in the lead. However, he was unable to hold her off for good when the river came the {a-Spades}.

The dealer counted out each players stack. First it was Peng and she had 1,010,000. Then it was Savitz's turn and as you can tell by the title of the post, he just barely missed the million mark and slowly walked off the stage.
