Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Mickey Petersen is Out

Mickey Petersen has been eliminated

Mickey Petersen has just had his aces cracked and the end result was an exit from the tournament. He started the ball rolling with a raise to 2,500 in early position. Phil Ivey folded, David Benyamine called before Alexander Venovski three-bet to 9,000. Back to the impassive Petersen and he four-bet pot, Benyamine quickly folded, Venovski moved all-in and Petersen called.

Venovski{Q-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds}
Petersen{A-Hearts} {A-Spades}

So Petersen was in great shape to double up. The flop contained more diamonds that a Britney Spears thong - {J-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds}.

"You haven't got a diamond have you?" Asked Petersen.

Venovski did have a diamond but in the end it was not a diamond that Venovski needed to win the pot. The turn card brought the {8-Spades} and the river {10-Hearts} made a straight for Venovski and Petersen was out.
