Shaun Deeb Eliminates John Gale
Shaun Deeb opens for 6,000 in early position and David Chiu calls next to act. Action folds to John Gale in the small blind who moves all in for 11,700. Deeb asks Chiu how much he is playing, and Chiu replies that he had 48,000 at the start of the hand. Deeb bets the pot and Chiu instantly folds.
Another player comments that Gale has Deeb crushed, and Gale replies with "Shaun's a lucky man". Deeb laughs and says "Yeah, I run good", and this is proven when the dealer fans out the flop, giving Deeb top set. The turn improves Deeb's holding as the gives him a straight, but he still has to dodge some cards on the river. The is a blank, meaning that Deeb's hand holds up and Gale is eliminated. Gale accepts defeat in his usual manner, "Gentleman John" wishing all at the table good luck with a genuine smile on his face as he heads out of Amazon Tan, whilst Deeb stacks up his new chipstack of 280,000.
