David "dblutf" Lander (above) just booked his first-ever Run it Up cash and was immediately moved to Jason Somerville's table. It didn't take long before both RIU Warriors went to war.
Lander raised to 25,000 on the button, and Somerville moved all in for his remaining 95,000 from the big blind. Lander snap-called and the hands were tabled.
Lander was well ahead until the flop came [Ac5d2c]. Somerville was all smiles until the dealer whipped over the [kh] on the turn. The river was the [4s] and Somerville was sent to the rail. Somerville said, "All I wanted was a sweat" as he graciously wished Lander luck and told him to "go for gold".
Although the gold trophy was not in the cards for the fearless RIU leader, Somerville did log his second cash of the series and is off to a great start.
David Lander - 270,000
Jason Somerville - Eliminated
