Benjamin Lukas got himself all in on fifth street of a big multi-way Stud pot. By the time he committed his last 31,000, he was left battling with Jason Brown and David Rogers.
Lukas: (x-x) / / (x)
Brown: (x-x) / / (x)
Rogers: (x-x) / / (x)
Rogers made the default bet on sixth street showing four to a Royal Flush. Brown could only chuckle. "Did you catch good?" he asked rhetorically. After some time, he tucked and mucked, and the cards were turned up.
"Do you have a flush?" Lukas wanted to know.
"Yep," Rogers admitted. He showed down / , then added the blank on seventh.
"How bad are you drawing?" one of Lukas' buddies on the rail asked.
"Dead," came the one-word answer. He opened up two more clubs in the hole, but his could not possibly improve to a better flush than Rogers'. He made trips with the , but it was far from enough.
Lukas has thusly been eliminated in 15th place, good for a paycheck of $8,641.
