Elliot Smith Eliminated in 3rd Place (AU$700,000)

Elliot Smith - 3rd Place
Elliot Smith - 3rd Place
Hand No. 205 -

Peter Rho has the button. Elliot Smith limps in from the small blind and Stewart Scott says all in. However, Smith insta-calls and turns up {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}. He is ahead of Scott's {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. Smith stands over the table and is anxious for the cards to come out, in hope of a much-needed double up.

The flop comes {K-Spades} {10-Clubs} {K-Hearts} and Smith maintains his lead. The turn card.....the {7-Spades}!!! Stewart Scott catches a seven to pair up and is just one card away from sending Elliot Smith to the rail. The river is the {5-Clubs} and that spells the end of Elliot Smith in the Aussie Millions Main Event.
