EPT Dublin: Rafferty on the rail

Joe Rafferty is out, with few chips left he went all in with AJ the player on the big blind found JJ.

Last year my job was to escort the final table players to the venue where the final table was to be filmed, and Joe refused to get in the player coach. I was under strict instructions to make all the players use the coach. No one wanted any final table players lost on the streets of Dublin. Joe said, 'I'm not getting in the coach. I can drive. I live here. I'm not going to get lost.' He didn't get lost, and he drove his way to a 4th place finish last year. This year he's driving home early.

Dario Minieri, who made the final table in Baden earlier this month, is also out. He went all-in on a flop of 8 J 7. ElkY held 77, and Dario's AA was beaten.

Other players out. 1999 WSOP Champ, Noel Furlong, Praz Bansi, Thang Duc Ngyen and Ashad Hussein.
