Chris Derby couldn't win back-to-back all-ins. The St. Louis native is sent to the rail in 41st place for $686.
Local player Chris Derby was down to about 75,000 chips with blinds at 3,000/6,000 when he pushed from early position. The rest of the table folded and Derby picked up the blinds and antes. This tournament features a big blind ante format where the big blind posts antes for the table instead of each individual player posting their own.
That hand build Derby's stack up to close to 90,000 chips. On the very next hand he went all-in from early position again in the 3 seat. This time he was called by the 5 seat. When the rest of the table folded, Derby showed his ace-king. Unfortunately his opponent held pocket kings. The 2c Ks 4h flop all but sealed Derby's fate. The turn and river produced the Qh and Ac and Derby exited in 41st place with $686.
Blinds - 3,000/6,000 - Big Blind Ante 6,000
