Event 25: David Shmuel – 10th Place ($994)

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 27: 25,000/50,000/5,000 Ante

The fast pace slowed down once they reached the final table and went an entire level without a big hand. The first knockout came in a weird situation.

Robert Chusid accidentally exposed one of this cards (the Ks) and was forced to play with one up and one down in the small blind. Action folded to him and he moved all-in.

Strong move but David Shmuel quickly called with AcQd and Chusid turned over his other card to find 5d. Chusid flopped a flush draw on the As7s6s board and turned a gutshot draw on the 3d turn.

Chusid jumped out of his seat and Shmuel shook his head when the 4h dropped on the river to complete the straight. It was a tough exit but Shmuel was gone in 10th place for $994.
