Tiger Woods and Russell Westbrook found themselves in a showdown at the poker table on Friday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Woods went all-in with ace-king on Westbrook, who was all-in with a pair of queens. The reigning Masters champion got lucky on the flop when the dealer turned over the cards and an ace was on top, giving Woods top pair. He celebrated momentarily, but once the dealer revealed the other cards, including a queen, Westbrook had three-of-a-kind.

Watch the drama unfold here:

With no help on the turn or the river, Woods was eliminated.

Despite the loss, the event appeared to be a success.
