Lejolivet Busts Bonyadi Flush Over Flush


We picked up the action on the turn in this hand and it turned out to be a big one. As a result, Farzad Bonyadi -- who began the day on 26,800 in chips -- was eliminated.

Gregory Lejolivet bet 800 on the {8-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{K-Hearts} board and Bonyadi put in a raise to 4,300. Lejolivet began to count out chips and put in a reraise to 9,400. Bonyadi only took about ten seconds or so to move all in. Lejolivet quickly called and tabled the {A-Spades}{K-Spades}. Bonyadi held a weaker flush, but wasn't stone dead yet with the {J-Spades}{9-Spades}. He still had an out to a straight flush if the {7-Spades} were to fall.

The river landed with the {5-Clubs} and Bonyadi couldn't pull of the miracle. At the final count of the chips, Lejolivet's all-in bet of 25,000 had Bonyadi just covered. Bonyadi was sent to the rail while Lejolivet boomed to over 50,000 in chips.
