Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Steinberg Mintz-ed

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Ben Mintz way back on Day 2b

From middle position, Ben Mintz opened to 43,000, and Jesse Steinberg three-bet shoved for 195,000 total. Mintz made the call with {K-Spades} {J-Hearts}, and Steinberg's {7-Hearts} {7-Spades} were flipping for his tournament life.

The {5-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {2-Hearts} flop was clean, but the {K-Hearts} on the turn was a bad card for Steinberg's chances. He had two outs left, and the river {10-Hearts} was not one of them. He's out with more than $40,000 as a consolation prize, while Mintz moves up to 1.05 million thanks to that elimination pot.
