While famously known for giving a copy of his book Ace on the River, to any player that busted him from a tournament, Brian Pinkus was not lucky enough to receive a copy today when he eliminated Barry Greenstein from this year's Main Event.
After a raise of 2,000 and two calls, Greenstein moved all in from the button for 20,400. The original raiser folded. The first caller, Brian Pinkus, went into the tank for a good two minutes before making the call. That lead to a fold from the other caller and brought Pinkus and Greenstein to a showdown.
The flop came down giving Greenstein no help. The on the turn paired Pinkus' live card, but also gave Greenstein outs to a gutshot straight draw. The river was the though and even though the pair double paired, Pinkus' pair of kings was enough to give him the knock out, but not a copy of Ace on the River.
