Mickael Morgousky Busts in 8th Place

Event 3: $500 + $60 No Limit

Mickael Morgousky moved all in from the button, and Joshua Emerson thought for a little while before calling all in for 292k with Js10s. Morgousky showed 2h2s, and it was a race situation.

The board came 10d 8d 6h 8h 6d, and Emerson paired his ten on the flop to win the pot and double up to 620k. Morgousky dropped down to about 60k -- less than three big blinds.

It's worth pointing out that Emerson started the day in 22nd place with 23 players remaining, but he has battled his way to the final table with a chance to win it.

Joshua Emerson, the Comeback Kid?

The next hand, Morgousky moved all in from the cutoff, and this time it was John Cleaver who called form the big blind with 6c6d. Morgousky once again showed 2c2h, only this time he was dominated and facing elimination.

The board came Jh 8d 4d 3c Ac, and Cleaver won the pot with his pocket sixes to win the pot. But it was a small pot, and Cleaver is still short with 250k (10 bb).

It may be a while before Mickael Morgousky plays pocket deuces again -- he played them in back-to-back hands and they bounced him out of this tournament. Morgousky earns $5,337 for his 8th-place finish.
