Event 13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Eights Into Nines Sends Noori to the Rail

Chris Swan opened for two bets and cleared the field around to Michael Noori in the big blind, who promptly three-bet. Swan, who knew his opponent was short, out in the four-bet and Noori called off his remaining 5,000.



"He's even got a diamond," a resigned Noori said after the {5-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop. The {6-Diamonds} turn gave both players a flush, though Swan's nine was higher. "I still have one out," Noori pointed out in reference to the {4-Diamonds}. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't in the cards as the {5-Spades} appeared on the river. Noori finished in 24th place and will take home $6,652 for his efforts.
