Event #10: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Joseph Ebanks Eliminated in 22nd Place ($15,552)

• Taso 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Joseph Ebanks' brain fade has cost him dearly, having lost his tournament life to Eddie Blumenthal.

On a board that read {5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Spades}{J-Hearts}; Ebanks shipped the rest of his stack into the middle after the river; Blumenthal looked puzzled, but called anyway.

Turns out Ebanks had {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for only two pair, and by the way he reacted, he genuinely hadn't seen the straight draw out there. Blumenthal did - and in fact had it - with {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, thus Ebanks was sent off to collect $15,552 for his 22nd place finish.
