WSOP $1 Mil Buy-In Player Gets Flushed Out

Totally unbelievable.

Poker player at WSOP loses $1 million after gut-wrenching beat (VIDEO)

Poker is a cruel game sometimes.

Even when the odds are stacked in your favor, it only takes a little bit of bad luck for everything to quickly fall apart.

In the $1 million buy-in tournament at the 2014 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Connor Drinan was eliminated in one of the most incredible hands we’ve seen in quite some time.

Cary Katz raised pre-flop, at which point Drinan decided to go all-in. Katz called, and the two men revealed their matching pocket aces. The only way for either player to win was on a flush, and there was just a 2-percent chance of that happening.

Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
