Event 19: Larry Lanced

$1000 + $90 Six-Max NLH

Roller-coaster ride for Pennsylvania native Larry Kostelac.

Hand 1) He has A-K vs. A-5 spades. All in on a spade heavy flop. Opponent hits spade on river to cripple Larry.

Hand 2) Larry 10-10 vs. Opponent's A-7 spades. Flop: 7-7-2. Larry stands and gathers his things...then a ten spikes the turn giving Kostelac new life.

Hand 3) Larry hits top pair with J-10 but is up against A-J. River ace sends Kostelac packing.

All three hands happened in one orbit. Bing, Bang, Boom - off to another tournament or cash table.

Mike "Unbelievable" Dentale took a hit and is out. I heard him say, "Everyone things they're a good player after they get hit with the deck." True statement.

86 players remain.

Blinds 800 / 1600 with 200 antes.
