Travell Thomas Eliminated in 19th Place ($8,150)

Travell Thomas's Main Event run has ended in 19th, as has a remarkable comeback that saw him begin Day 2 with just 13,300 chips, then survive all of the way to the final three tables and very nearly the chip lead.

The last hand for Thomas began with Adam Teasdale opening for 35,000 from the cutoff seat, Thomas reraising to 100,000 from the small blind, Teasdale four-betting to 280,000, Thomas shoving for 863,000 total, and Teasdale calling to leave himself just a little behind.

Teasdale: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Thomas: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

It was the biggest pot of the tournament thus far, and after the {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop Thomas was still ahead and primed to take over the chip lead. But the {Q-Clubs} fell on the turn to give Teasdale a Broadway straight, and after the {10-Diamonds} river Thomas was out.

The final 18 players are now redrawing for seats around the last two tables. We'll get you their new seating arrangement shortly.
