LAPT San Jose: Ramdin rubbed out, Plastik peeved

It sounds trite. It sounds like the type of thing you say when you don't know what to say. It sounds like the thing we're about to say about Victor Ramdin.

When it's your time to go, it's your time to go.

Ramdin, deep into a massage (that oddly somehow included Andre Akkari), found himself in a situation that his stack dictated he get his late position A-Q all-in. It might have been fine, save the button holding A-K. Five bricks on board and the Team PokerStars Pro took the long walk back to the hotel. His departure leaves Alex Gomes as the only Team Pro member left in the field.


Ramdin's rubdown cut short

Meanwhile, the PokerStars video blogging team caught up with David Plastik to chat about his run-in with Magnus Bing earlier in the day.
