One of the tougher, if not the toughest players in the Event 9 field is no longer with us as James R. Smith has dispatched Nicholas Immekus. Smith was one of the early chip leaders and is continuing to build only two eliminations from the final table.
On a draw heavy board of 9♠5♠3♥K♣Q♠, Immekus moved all-in for about 25,000 with Smith finding a called immediately. Smith showed 7♠6♠ for a flush as Immekus showed A♠3♦ for bottom pair and the nut flush blocker. Smith is now over 110,000 while we will see Immekus this weekend for the Main Event and PNIA “Cash Game.”
