St. Vincent Looking Strong After Returning As The Short Stack

Event 1 (Day 2)
Level 21 (5,000/10,000/1,000)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 18
Chip Average: 360,000
Brad St. Vincent (Bristol, RI)
In our opening post of the day we mentioned Brad St. Vincent as one of the players to watch on the money bubble as he was one of the shortest stacks remaining in the field, with just over 10 big blinds.

We did watch him, seeing him double up on one of the first hands of the day and then continue to chip up through the money bubble and now, after hitting a runner runner flush to send big stacked Brian Strair to the rail, he looks like he might be one of the chip leaders after coming into Day 2 as the "shorty".

The action was picked up with Strair opening the action from middle position and the table would fold around to St. Vincent in the small blind, who would three-bet to 81,000.

Strair would then quickly move all-in and begin to table his hand before the dealer and the other players at the table stopped him from doing so.

St. Vincent had missed that encounter, as he was taking a count of his own chips, facing a 175,000 bet that would more or less have him playing for his tournament life as he had Strair slightly covered.

St. Vincent would raise his cards in the air and then say, "I have a bad feeling about this, but I call." tabling [Qh][Qc].

Strair would then turn over [Ac][Ad] and St. Vincent's read would be right, as he was just five cards away from being crippled.

He wouldn't be as four of those five cards would give him a flush on a board of [8h][7h][Jc][2h][Kh], going runner-runner to send Strair and his pocket rockets to the rail.

St. Vincent and the rest of the table couldn't believe it and after taking in the pot, his stack is now being eyeballed just over the 450,000 mark, playing 45 big blinds and an above average stack after coming into today with 10 big blinds and a dream...

We are now down to our final 18 players, which means we will redraw for the final two tables of the $100,000 GTD Event 1.
