Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

X-22 Exits Stage Left

• Nivel 6: 100-200, 0 ante

We missed the preliminary action but with the flop reading {10-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds}, Paul "X-22" Magriel found himself all-in against the larger stack held by Narendra Banwari. The tournament backgammon legend tabled his {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for top pair but found himself trailing the two pair held by Banwari, who showed down the {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.

Turn: {4-Clubs}

River: {6-Diamonds}

And with that, the man known as "X-22" was sent to the rail, while Banwari built his stack to upwards of 15,000 chips.
