Yu led out on fourth street, Grapenthien raised, and Yu committed the remainder of his stack.

Yu: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Grapenthien: {j-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Both players had a pair, but Yu's cowboys were superior to Grapenthien's tres.

"My intention is to double up!" Yu shouted to his rail, prompting his friends to laugh.

Both players were dealt a deuce on fifth street, and sixth missed both players as well, but Grapenthien made two pair with the {9-Clubs} on seventh. Yu revealed a meaningless {10-Clubs}, and was eliminated.

Yu said his goodbyes to the table and wished them luck, then once again turned to his rail.

"See!" he shouted. "Choice Center is a scam! It doesn't work!"
