As we wrote in our "Good / Bad for Poker" article on espn.com, Craig Marquis definitely fell into the "Good for Poker" hole and one (or three, as in, the Entities) might argue that of the November NineTM, he might’ve been the best for poker if he won (definitely the most marketable).
Well that ain’t happening.
Marquis busted out first, falling to Scott Montgomery.
In a hand you’d typically only see on Full Tilt, Marquis was all-in pre-flop with pocket 7’s. Montgomery called with A-Q. Marquis flopped a set, but Montgomery runner-runnered broadway for a straight.
Kelly Kim, who is clinging on to dear life with only 600,000 in chips now, did this upon Marquis’ busting, as he’s now a millionaire.
