Nicholas "_Lionheart_" Smith:

"P_DICE" Craps Out in 34th Place

"P_DICE" raised to 100,000 from the button and "EarlGrey" defended the big blind to see a     flop. "EarlGrey" checked and then called when "P_DICE" moved all in for 643,932.


"EarlGrey" had the better flush draw which left "P_DICE" looking to get lucky. The   turn was of no consequence, and the   river completed both flushes, which was no good for "P_DICE."

"P_DICE" was bounced in 34th place for $41,50.17.
