Hickerson Dusted by Van Syckle

HillKerby • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Paul Hickerson

Paul Hickerseon shoved all in for his last 85,000 from under the gun and Bob Van Syckle, who was next to act in middle position, announced a call. All remaining players folded and the two tabled their hands.

Paul Hickerson: {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Bob Van Syckle: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}

The flop {7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{10-Spades} fell in Hickerson's favor. However, Van Syckle regained the lead on the turn {j-Diamonds} and kept it as the river fell {5-Spades} to send him home in 21st place.

Moments later, Robert Galinson was seen headed to the payout desk as well to become the 20th place finisher, bringing the tournament just one elimination away from the final two tables.
