A bit of irregularity, a smart adjustment, and a bad beat all in one hand? Matt Ellis is under-the-gun, but before he can act, Andrew Watson (pictured) raises to 7,000 from Ellis's left. Ellis decides to limp for 3,000 and Watson's raise stands. Bart Bogard flat-calls from middle position and the action folds back to Ellis.
Ellis moves all-in for 47,000 and Watson waits for the count before committing the rest of his chips with an overshove. Bogard is short-stacked with less than 30,000 behind and he elects to fold.
Matt Ellis - K♠K♥
Andrew Watson - Q♦Q♣
Ellis is a 4-to-1 favorite to win the hand, but is at risk for his tournament life. The flop comes out clean for the pocket kings, 6♣5♦4♦. The 8♥ on the turn brings in a few chop outs, but Watson wins it all on the Q♥ river.
"I folded pocket jacks," Bogard offers, while a few other players are scolding Watson for acting out of turn.
"I would never do that on purpose," Watson defends. "This is supposed to be a gentleman's game."
Andrew Watson - 110,500
Matt Ellis - Eliminated
