A big hand just took place up on the feature table, one that saw the elimination of Sam Trickett.
It began when Trickett opened for 16,000 from early position and Andrey Shatilov three-bet to 41,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Trickett, and he thought for well over a minute before four-betting all in for 357,000. Shatilov, who barely had the bigger stack, snap-called.
As it turned out, Trickett picked a bad spot to shove, and he paid the ultimate price after the board ran out . The stacks were counted down to make sure, and when all was said and done Trickett had been eliminated from the EPT Malta Main Event.
