Moments after the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up exited the Amazon Room, the champion was right behind him.
Greg Raymer: /
Joe Tehan: /
Raymer completed with an ace showing, Tehan raised with a three, and Raymer re-raised. Tehan reluctantly called. Raymer led out on fourth street, Tehan called, and on fifth, Raymer led out again. Tehan raised, putting Raymer all in, and Raymer called.
Raymer was dealt a king on fifth, giving him no help, and Tehan received a five, giving him a seventy-five low, and the lead in the hand.
"I really thought I was going to win this hand," Raymer sighed.
Tehan immediately flipped his down card face up on seventh, and the did not improve his hand. Raymer had outs, but another wasn't one of them, and he was eliminated.
