The 2016 Aussie Millions Champion Ari Engel won’t be defending his title after running into an opponent’s pocket aces.
We missed the bust out but Matthew Wakeman who was sitting on Engel’s left filled us in on the details. The story goes that Engel opened the action to 2,300 before the player in the big blind made it 7,100 to go.
That’s when Engel moved all in and was called instantly by his opponent with the best preflop hand in hold’em. Engel had a modest pocket fours and couldn’t improve to see last year’s champ sent packing.
