RG NKC Main Event (Day 2): Illig's fate is sealed

Level 15 (2500/5000/500)
Entrants: 423
Players remaining: 53
Average chips: 159,623

 

Grant Illig opens for 10,000 and Jacob Seale three-bets to 30,000. The action folds back to Illig who goes all in for around 145,000.

Jacob Seale - A♣K♣
Grant Illig - A♠J♥

"I thought you were just putting the pressure on," Illig says when he sees he's dominated.

The flop comes A♥T♦8♣, leaving Illig with three outs or runner-runner for a straight. The 6♠ on the turn takes away the straight possibility and must catch a jack to stay alive. It doesn't arrive with the K♠ and Illig exits the tournament.

Jacob Seale - 443,000
Grant Illig - Out
