Samantha Abernathy Eliminated in 3rd Place (AU$625,000)

Samantha Abernathy Eliminated

Hand #92: Tony Dunst folded the button and action was on Samantha Abernathy in the small blind. With just about 15 big blinds left (1.5 million) she moved all in with {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Ari Engel was quick to call in the big blind with {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

Abernathy needed to improve to stay alive. While Engel flopped two pair, Abernathy was anything but drawing dead after the {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} flop.

She needed running tens or eights, or a seven or queen to stay alive. She missed those outs with the {J-Hearts} on the turn and {8-Spades} on the river, and made her exit in 3rd place for AU$625,000.

Tony Dunst and Ari Engel are guaranteed AU$1 million but will soon be battling it out heads up for the AU$1.6 million first place prize and the coveted 2016 Aussie Millions Poker Championship Main Event gold bracelet.
