Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Mortensen Gored

Carlos Mortensen - out

The table folded around to the blinds, and Jon Aguiar shoved in to put the pressure on the short stack to his left. It was Carlos "The Matador" Mortensen, the 1999 WSOP Champion. He squeezed out {A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} and quickly called off his last ~10,000, and Aguiar was drawing live for the knockout with {8-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}.

And the knockout he'd get. The board ran {7-Spades} {7-Clubs} {Q-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}, and eights up send Mortensen off to the rail.
