Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Madsen Rockets Collopy to the Rail

donpeters • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Jim Collopy just busted in 33rd place to send the tournament down to its final four tables. Jeff Madsen was the player who sent him packing thanks to pocket rockets.

After Aaron Massey opened from the cutoff seat to 12,000, Madsen reraised to 31,000 from the button. Collopy reraised all in for approximately 70,000 from the small blind, and Olivier Busquet folded from the big blind. Massey also folded, and then Madsen made the quick call with the {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}. Collopy was at risk with the {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}.

Collopy didn't get much help at all on the {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop, but he did pair up when the {K-Hearts} hit the turn. Needed another king on the river, Collopy watched as the dealer slapped out the {3-Hearts} to end his tournament. Madsen, on the other hand, moved back to 540,000 in chips.
