Event #10 - Brian Leblanc Eliminated By Soukha Kacchitavong


Blinds: 500/100
Ante: 100

On a board reading [jh][10c][4c], Brian 'Castles' Leblanc checks, Soukha Kachittavong bets 4,700, and Leblanc announces that he is all in.  Kachittavong asks for a count.  He cuts out the additional 31,000 to call, looks at Leblanc and says, "Jack ten is good," he says as he turns over [kh][jd].  Leblanc slowly turns over [ad][kc]. 

Unfortunately for Leblanc, the [6h] turn and [10d] river do not improve his hand, and he is eliminated from play. 

After the hand is over, Alex Begazyon tells the table that he had doubled Kachittavong up when they got it all in with kings versus queens, and Kachittavong hit a queen on the flop.  Begazyon says those lucky chips he gave "Brother Soukha" helped him to win the hand against Leblanc. 

Soukha Kachittavong- 110,000
Brian Leblanc - Eliminated
