Event 20: Williams Walks Plank

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Aces are David's Downfall

David Williams' quest for a WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship title comes to an end when he runs into the pocket queens of Vanessa Selbst. 

On a 10-high flop Williams is all-in with 10 8 against Selbt's pocket queens. The board doesn't offer any help and he sends his last 150k across the table.

"It always hurts when you get knocked out of a tournament," says Williams who began Day 2 as the chip leader. "But now I get to go home to my family so that's a good thing."

Williams at one point had his chip stack up to 2.5 million, but he twice lost big pots with pocket aces, including one to chip leader Will Failla.

Williams, who was the runner-up here to Daniel Negreanu in 2004, is looking forward to seeing his his seven month old daughter Liliana.
