Steven Dubois-Daigle’s time in this tournament was limited. He had only a handful of chips left over the last 20 minutes, and it seemed he was destined to get busted the minute he fielded a less-than-stellar hand.
At table 34 just now he ended up shoving with what he felt was his best shot, a suited . Not a terrible hand in Short Deck. However, Donald Abdelhay called, and didn’t just bust him with his superior hand. He crushed him with extreme prejudice. His quad aces on the flop left no room for a comeback.
As Steven took his coat and walked away, Donald griped that his massive hand was wasted, only collecting Steven’s last 19,000 chips. It is unclear whether the rest of the players at the table felt his pain.
