Leo Wolpert Eliminated in 23rd Place by Ray Qartomy


Ray Qartomy min-raises under the gun to 100,000, and Leo Wolpert calls from the big blind. The flop comes 8d 7s 2d, and Wolpert moves all in for 230,000.

Qartomy calls with 7c 7d for a set of sevens, and Wolpert turns over Kc Jh for king high. Wolpert is drawing thin, needing a runner-runner jack-high straight to stay alive.

The turn is the 9d, giving Wolpert outs to a ten, but the river card is the 6h, and Qartomy wins the pot with his set of sevens. Wolpert is eliminated in 23rd place.

Ray Qartomy  –  2,000,000  (40 bb)
Leo Wolpert  –  Out in 23rd Place  ($58,175)
