Grafton Loses Race to Almeida, Ending His Tournament

• Nível 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Action folded to PokerStars Ambassador Sam "SamSquid" Grafton who limped in from the cutoff, "KirusRus" raised to 38,500 from the small blind and Christian "ChristianBR4" Almeida four-bet all in for 705,629 from the big blind.

Action was back on Grafton who called off his remining 71,650 stack while "KirusRus" mucked their hand.

Sam "SamSquid" Grafton: {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Christian "ChristianBR4" Almeida: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

It was a classic race with Grafton ahead with his made hand and nothing changed after the {3-Clubs}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs} flop. Unfortunately for him, the {a-Hearts} fell on the turn pairing Almeida and the {10-Clubs} river ended Grafton's tournament as play inches closer to the money bubble.
