Perelman Out


Rob Perelman began today with a short stack, and things didn't get better for him during the first 45 minutes or so. He then saw Dmitry Kataev, sitting to his right, make a standard raise, and Perelman just called, leaving himself but 4,000 left. "Advanced strategy," he cracked with a grin.

It folded around and the flop came {Q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}. Kataev put out 4,000 chips. "5,000 is the minimum bet," quipped Perelman, and the table laughed as he set out his last chips to call.

Kataev had {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and Perelman {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}. The turn brought the {10-Spades}, pairing Perelman but giving Kataev a straight, and after the {8-Spades} river, Perelman had been eliminated. He congratulated the others, then standing delivered one more good line before leaving.

"Pay out!"
