At the one and only table left in this Turbo flight we just witnessed two short stacks go heads up against each other. Nick Soller (in the baseball cap below) had shoved his remaining 76,000 with an almost unbeatable J-6. Alas, fate was not on his side, as he lost to Sebastien Khoury’s pocket pair of queens.
When the board was dealt Sebastien collected everything but a lonely 2,000 chips, which still belonged to Nick.
The next hand Nick shoved his last 2,000 with basically nothing, but accidentally won the pot, multiplying his stack by 9 with the blinds, rising to a respectable but still precarious 18,000 chips.
The next hand he shoved for the third time in a row. The table seemed to want to keep him around, as six players out of nine left limped in to see the flop. If Nick were to win this one he would be back in the game and above 100,000 again!
Unfortunately it was not meant to be, as he bricked the board and gently took his leave into that good night.
