The namesake of the WPT Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic has been eliminated.
After a flop of [Js7d5h], Darren Elias (who recently final tabled the WPT Borgata Poker Open) bets, Doyle Brunson raises, and Elias moves all in.
Brunson calls with [KhJh] for a pair of jacks, but Elias turns over [QcQh]. The two players are nearly even in chips, but Brunson will need to improve to stay alive.
The turn is the [10d], the river is the [9s], and Darren Elias wins the pot with his pocket queens to eliminate Doyle Brunson from the tournament.
Darren Elias – 120,000
Doyle Brunson – Eliminated
