Gruissem Gets One

[user101598] • Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante
Philipp Gruissem

Philipp Gruissem was faced with an all-in bet of 12,125 on a flop of {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, and with a player behind him he chose to just call. That player folded, and the hands were tabled.

Gruissem: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Opponent: {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

"That's a very fair fight," David Sands said at the sight of the two hands.

The turn was the {10-Diamonds}, taking away the players' two-pair outs, and the {a-Clubs} on the river missed him completely. He was eliminated, while Gruissem is up to 77,000 chips.

The man known as "Philbort" just arrived in Las Vegas for the WSOP, and our own Remko Rinkema caught up with him during a break:
