Laura Hoppe Eliminated in 3rd Place ($53,899)

Laura Hoppe

Brent Cunningham limped in on the button, and Laura Hoppe jammed for 520,000 in the small blind. Cunningham snapped Hoppe off after Kevin Garosshen folded in the big blind.

Laura Hoppe: {a-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Brent Cunningham: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Cunningham held the goods, but Hoppe still had hope with her ace. The {j-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Spades} flop kept Cunningham out in front, and the {7-Hearts} turn left Hoppe looking for a three-outer to survive. The {k-Diamonds} river instead filled Hoppe up, and Hoppe, who started the day as the short stack, held her head high as she shook hands with her opponents and left the tournament area.
