Event #35 Mixed Hold'em ($2500) - Cajelais finished 2nd!


Two players were to watch in this tournament while Ivey was in his fifth final table in 12 days and Cajelais was among the leaders!

Things were going well for Ivey up to this hand.

Ivey raise 20,000 on the Cut-off with 88. Samuel Goldbuff reraise all-in for 159,000 tokens with 62. The flop falls an interesting 352 to Golbuff which gives it a pair and a gutshot. The turning point is except for Ivey, but 4 on the River completes the straight for Goldbuff leaving only 11,000 chips to Ivey.

Several people laugh thing and Ivey has the "Ivey face" that one he knows. He opens his mouth saying: "is what is really true stuff"? Ivey will be later removed by Cajelais and released 8th tournament.

Some later eliminations, it remains as the heads-up final between Erik Cajelais and Chris Tryba. Tryba has twice Cajelais tokens.

The last hand is as follows:

Cajelais has KT and Tryba 9dTd.

The flop comes Qd9c4s. Update Cajelais and Tryba call.The turn gives the nuts Cajelais, Jd. update again Cajelais and Tryba call.

The river is brutal for Cajelais, a 8 d which gives the nuts Tryba!

Tryba lead on the river and Cajelais thought for a moment before declaring in all!
