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

Madsen Eliminates Massey to Amass Some Chips

Chad_Holloway • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Aaron Massey

Action folded around to Aaron Massey in the small blind and he opted to move all in for right around 140,000. Jeff Madsen was in the big, asked for a count, and then squeezed out his cards.

"Call," he said after looking down at something he liked.

Madsen: {a-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Massey: {q-Spades}{7-Spades}

Massey was behind, but he was drawing to two live cards. The {k-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop wasn't what he was looking for, and neither was the {2-Hearts} turn. Massey needed either a queen or seven on the river to survive, but it was not meant to be as the {K-Hearts} blanked.

Massey exited in 31st place for $15,148.
