Valerie Hanley Eliminated in 3rd Place ($21,580)

GeoffFisk • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Valerie Hanley

In a three-bet pot, John Nethery checked from the small blind, and Valerie Hanley went all in for the rest of her stack, around 1.3 million. With the flop reading {k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Nethery snap called.

John Nethery: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Valerie Hanley: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Hanley's pair of kings was outkicked, and the turn {2-Clubs} and river {3-Hearts} brought no help, leaving Hanley with 400,000 chips after the loss.

Shortly thereafter, Hanley went all in preflop from the small blind, and Nethery called from the big blind blind.

Valerie Hanley: {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
John Nethery: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Board: {j-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

The hand was Hanley's final of the tournament, leaving Nethery and Rian Mullins to play heads-up for the championship.
