Joe Elpayaa Eliminated By Chip Leader Nick Schulman
Level 14: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Nick Schulman raises to 12,000 from middle position and Joe Elpayaa defends the big blind.
The flop comes A33 and Elpayaa checks. Schulman bets 15,000 and Elpayaa calls. The turn is the Q and Elpayaa checks again. Schulman bes 24,500 and Elpayaa calls.
The river is the K and Elpayaa checks a third time. Schulman bets 180,000, which is more than enough to put Elpayaa all-in for his remaining 140,000 or so.
Elpayaa thinks a while, mumbling to himself under his breath. Eventually he calls.
Schulman tables A3 for a flopped full house and Elpayaa mucks.
With that pot, Nick Schulman is now the first player over the 1 million-chip mark.
Nick Schulman - 1,090,000 (218 BBs)
Joe Elpayaa - eliminated
