Mike eliminated on coin flip

raise in front, Mike moves in for 12k with 22, raiser calls with AQ suited, hits "Q" on the flop, that is that..


Oy!! right at the end too. that's poker, more to come, ill get a semi interview with Mike and ask him a few questions.

Mike -" I really at first did not play well, but I nailed a couple of sets when I had small pocket pairs, afterwards I started to play well, but I could not pick up the cards I needed, and I needed to make a move because the NL round was coming back again and the LIMIT round the blinds were getting too high for me to sit around."

Scott- "Mike, what did you think about the new deck they were using?"

Mike - " I thought it was a practical joke at first, seriously. but then when I realized it was for real, I at first, along with most of the other pros refused to play. I was calling for the tournament director, me and everyone else. They had to on the dinner break call around all the casinos to get the regular deck back since they needed so many decks"

Scott "Mike, how do you feel now?"

Mike= " I am tired, they said you can get a pass, you just have to fill in some stuff, I am going to bed, I got the tourney tomorrow and there might be 3000 people in it, so good night"

Thats too bad he got knocked out, but this was only the first tournament. If somebody knows, what kind of deck were they using? What was so different about it from a normal deck?

In that video, you will see the new cards. Well they are the old cards now as they have been shit canned.
