Hastings Gets Lucky to Eliminate Applegate

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

We're not sure how the preflop action unfolded, but we do know it resulted in Thomas Applegate getting his stack of 545,000 all in against Brian Hastings.

Applegate: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Hastings: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Applegate had Hastings dominated thanks to his kicker, but he still got up out of his seat to watch the flop. A look of disappointment crossed Applegate's face when the {8-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop gave Hastings the lead with jacks and eights. As the dealer burned and turned the {2-Hearts}, Applegate grabbed his backpack and slung it over his shoulder. The dealer then burned one more time and put out the {9-Diamonds}. Applegate failed to catch a queen and his 2014 WSOP Main Event came to an end.
