Lars Bonding - out

We missed the hand as it played out, but Vanessa Selbst was kind enough to fill us in on the manner in which she sent Lars Bonding off to the exit.

It began with Selbst opening with a raise in early position, and Bonding three-bet shoved for about 22,000 or so. Selbst quickly called with the covering stack, and her ace-king was dominating Bonding's ace-jack.

The flop came {Q-} {5-} {2-} with two spades, and Bonding had the ace of spades to try and chase down a running flush. The turn was the best card in the deck for him, the {J-Spades} to give him the pair and the flush draw. Now Selbst needed to find one of the two non-spade kings in the deck to take the pot.

And sure enough, she found it. Selbst can't remember which suit it was, but the {K-} on the river was not spades, and it allowed her to re-suck to the win and send Bonding packing.

Selbst is closing in on the century mark, sitting with about 96,000 now.
