Feature Table Live Stream Link: https://www.twitch.tv/foxwoodspoker

In a hand that extended a few minutes into the break, Sean Carlson was eliminated by Andy Kaplan.

The board read 84♠36. Carlson had bet 11,000 from middle position, and Kaplan shoved all in for around 75,000, having Carlson covered by about 15,000. Carlson went deep into the tank.

"Clock," Kaplan said, "Sorry man, I just have to piss."

The floor is called over and Carlson is given 60 seconds to act or his hand would be declared dead.

As the floor starts counting down, "Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five," Carlson moves a stack of chips forward to call.

"Good call," Kaplan says as he tables A4 for a pair of fours, and a flush draw.

Carlson is in the lead holding 10♣10, but the A♠ comes on the river, giving Kaplan two pair to win the hand, and Carlson is eliminated six away from the money. 

Andy Kaplan - 175,000
Sean Carlson - Eliminated

Any Kaplan shoves all in for 16,300 in the cutoff. The button folds, the small blind reshoves for less (12,000), and Justin Lynn also shoves all in from the big blind, having both players covered.

Kaplan: K♣Q♣
Small Blind: 77
Lynn: K♠K

The flop comes A♣J♦5♣ leaving Lynn's kings in the lead, but giving Kaplan flush and straight outs.

The 2 turn does not change the hand, but the 2♣ on the river gives Kaplan a flush to nearly triple up.

Andy Kaplan - 45,000

Event #8, Flight D - Sherwin Agard Accidentally Folds the Nuts

Level: 2
Blinds:  50/100
Current Entries: 57

Sherwin Agard is feeling confident after just winning the last hand.  In this hand, action folds to him in the hijack and Agard says, "You know what?  I am going to win this hand without even looking. I raise to 250."

Raj Patel calls on the button and Michael Ferraro calls in the big blind.

The flop comes Q4♠3. Ferraro checks, Agard bets 300 (still without looking), Patel folds, and Ferraro calls.

The turn is the 2. Ferraro checks again, and Agard says, "See, I am gonna win this hand without even looking. I bet 800," and he throws out his bet of 800.  Once again, Ferraro calls.

The river is the A. This time Ferraro quickly announces that he is all in, and Agard is caught off guard.

"I guess I better check my cards now," Agard says.

"Noooo...you said you weren't going to look," Ferraro says.

Agard looks at his first card, then looks at his second card, and says, "Alright, I guess I have to fold," as he tables K3 for the nut flush.

Ferraro says, "You folded that? You just folded the nuts," as Ferraro tables an inferior flush, 96.

"What?  NO!" Agard shouts, "I didn't even see that. I tabled my hand."

The floor is called over and since Agard verbally announced that he folded prior to tabling his hand, the hand is ruled dead, and the pot is awarded to Ferraro.

"What an idiot," Raj Patel says as the chips are passed over to Ferraro, "Please write that, 'What an idiot.'" 

Michael Ferraro - 15,000
Sherwin Agard -  30,000

Justin Lynn raises to 4,000 in early position, and the player to his direct left calls.  It folds to Sean Carlson in middle position who raises to 11,000.  It folds back around to the original raiser who pauses for a few moments before hesitantly folding, and the player to his left quickly calls.

Carlson is away ahead holding AA against his opponent's J♣J♠.

The flop comes Q♠73, and Lynn says, "Oh man, I folded pocket queens."

The 7♣ turn and 8 river are safe for Carlson, and he doubles up.

As the chips are being counted down from Carlson's opponent's stack, the table talks about Lynn's fold, all agreeing that it was, "Absolutely the right fold," despite the fact that he would have won the hand.

Sean Carlson - 80,000

The board runs out KK♠7♣2♣8, awarding Kernan a double up.
