At the start first level after dinner break, Matt Weber had about 700,000 chips going into the 3000/6000 level. Now he has zero after being on the losing end of several big hands. We were able to catch the hand that ended his tournament.
Action had folded to Weber and he opened 20,000 from middle position. Action folded to Michael Zucchet in the small blind and he raised to 37,000. Dana Castaneda called from the big blind and action was back on Weber. He moved all in for his last, roughly, 190,000. Instantly Zucchet called. Castaneda folded quickly.
"S***," Zucchet said upon seeing the hands.
The flop came down staying safe for Weber to double. The turn was the , still safe. But when the dealer burned and turned up the river Weber shot right out of his chair, launching it several feet back.
He mumbled several expletives about bad players and running bad and grabbed his things, waiting first for a chip count before finding out he was eliminated. He nodded his head, grabbed his payout slip, and walked out the door.
The final 27 players are now redrawing in the blue section of the Amazon room.
