Tom Koral Eliminated by New Chip Leader Al Krockey
Tom Koral opened to 23,000 under the gun, Michael O'Neill called in the next position, Al Krockey called in the small blind, and David Gutfreund came along in the big blind.
The flop was and the blinds checked. Koral moved all in for 211,000, O'Neill called, and Krockey re-shoved with both Gutfreund and O'Neill covered.
Gutfreund folded and O'Neill mucked face up.
Krockey had for a set, and Koral had for the nut flush draw.
The turn gave Koral the flush, but the on the river gave Krockey the full house to take the pot and eliminate a very accomplished tournament player in Tom Koral.
