2015 WSOP Champ Joe McKeehen Eliminated; Garcia & Palumbo Gone

[user153638] • Nível 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Three players put in what looked like 3,500 preflop and saw a flop of {7-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Joe McKeehen led out for 4,000 from the small blind, Naji Harb called from middle position, and Ami Alibay, who had a nice stack of chips, opted to call from the cutoff.

After the dealer burned and turned the {8-Diamonds}, McKeehen bet 9,200, Harb folded, and Alibay raised all in. McKeehen, who had 1,000 back, called off only to discover he was drawing dead.

McKeehen: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Alibay: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Alibay got lucky to turn a set, and he dispatched a tough opponent after the meaningless {j-Hearts} was run out on the river.

Meanwhile, both Sergio Garcia ad Rocco Palumbo have been eliminated from the tournament.
