Deonarine Itwaru raised under the gun to 2,400, Scott Robbins moved all in from the hijack for 28,900, and Itwaru asked for an exact count before he went into the tank.

Itwaru asked if Robbins has ace-king, but Robbins didn’t say anything. Itwaru thought for a while longer before he asked himself, “Do I want to gamble this early in the event?”

Itwaru eventually called with AhKc, and Robbins turned over KhJh. Robbins needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10c9s6s7h5s, and Robbins flopped a gutshot straight draw and turned a double-gutshot, but missed his outs on the river. Itwaru won the pot with his ace to eliminate Robbins from the tournament.
