World Series or Bust National Championship

Wayne Corlew Eliminated in 6th Place ($1,500 Tournament Package)

BrandonBloom • Level 18: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Wayne Corlew

Wayne Corlew limped from early position and Cody Slusher raised to 80,000 on the button. Corlew called.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Slusher ended up getting his 509,000 remaining chips in and was at risk.

Cody Slusher: {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Wayne Corlew: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Slusher needed help to stay alive, and although the {a-Diamonds} turn gave his opponent two pair, Slusher could still make a flush.

"Diamond!" an unknown spectator yelled out.

Sure enough, the {6-Diamonds} spiked the river to send the huge pot to Slusher and give him over a million chips, while Corlew was left with less than a single big blind.

On the next hand, Corlew was in the big blind with his remaining chips and was against Nick Kehren.

Wayne Corlew: {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Nick Kehren: {k-Spades}{3-Clubs}

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} to take the rest of Corlew's chips and end his run in sixth, good for a $1,500 tournament package.
