Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Eric Wasserson Eliminated in 12th Place ($31,916)


Barry Schulman raised to 45,000 from the hijack and Eric Wasserson quickly moved all in for around 285,000 from the button. As the dealer began counting down Wasserson's stack, Gregg Wilkinson announced he was all in from the small blind, having Wasserson covered. Schulman shrugged as he released his hand, and Wasserson was at risk and in bad shape:

Wasserson: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Wilkinson: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The dealer rolled out a {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop, and suddenly Wasserson needed one of the two remaining nines to make a straight. That changed when the board paired with the {7-Hearts} on the turn, and Wasserson was unable to boat up on the river. He's on his way to the cashier to pick up $31,916 for his four days of work.
