Event 15: Roman Valerstein Eliminated in 7th Place ($5,265)

$1,650 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold ‘Em (Single Re-Entry)
Level 15: 1500/3000/500 Ante

If anyone needs some advice on how to play a short stack, Roman Valerstein is your guy.  Unfortunately, his luck ran out here in Event 15.

Valerstein bet 6,000 and saw chip leader Steele Sutter go over the top putting Valerstein to a difficult decision.  After humorously asking Sutter for a chip count, Valerstein decided to make the call.

Valerstein: 8c8s
Sutter: AdQs

Unfortunately for Valerstein, the board ran out 10sAs6d7cKd giving Sutter aces and sending Valerstein to the rail. Valerstein was congratulated for his play by the rest of the players as he left the table to pick up a $5,265 payday.
