David Sands Busts a Player

Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

Champions Club member JC Tran raises to 1,400 from middle position and the player on the button moves all in for 3,925. David Sands is in the small blind and reraises to 6,700 total.

Tran folds, leaving Sands and the all in player to turn up their hands. Sands holds 9spade9diamond and the at-risk player holds 7spade7club. The board runs out KheartJdiamond2diamondQspadeAspade and Sands takes the pot.

David Sands - 63,000

Ray Qartomy moves all in under the gun for about 3,500, and WPT Champions Club member Andy Frankenberger calls from middle position with AheartQdiamond. Qartomy turns over Aclub10heart, and he needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Qspade5diamond5club2diamond7spade, and Frankenberger wins the pot with two pair, queens and fives, to eliminate Qartomy from the tournament.
