Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Thom Werthmann Eliminated in 10th Place ($11,361)

Thom Werthmann

After being crippled by Bryan Pellegrino just a few hands before, Werthmann was all in in the big blind on the last hand of the night. Daniel Negreanu came in for a raise, and Jonathan Aguiar made the call. Those two were on the side, while Werthmann, who hadn't looked at his hand, was at risk.

Aguiar and Negreanu checked down a board of {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, and Aguiar showed {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for king high, which was good enough to beat Negreanu. Werthmann revealed his cards one at a time. First...{7-Clubs}. Second...{8-Spades}. Eight high was no good for Werthmann, and he was sent to the rail.

And wow. Just like that we lose two players on the final two hands, and we are down to a final table right under the wire!
